Rep. Davis backs Pat Brady

Tue, 26 Mar 2013 14:42:46 CDT

A Republican Congressman says he believes his party's chairman should be allowed to complete his term, after taking a controversial stance earlier this year. High-level Republicans unsuccessfully tried to overthrow State Party Chairman Pat Brady after he announced his support for same-sex marriage. Congresssman Rodney Davis of Taylorville stands by Brady, saying he did a "good job" bringing the GOP together during the 2012 election season. Instead of focusing on inner-party politics, Davis says Republicans should focus on solving the problems that plague Illinois.

Davis opposes same-sex marriage, but says Brady is entitled to his own opinions.
