The Champion News published a press release from Jack Roeser, who calls on Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady to retract his support for same-sex marriage. Said Roeser:
"Marriage is defined as one man and one woman in our Republican platform. Our platform is not negotiable. Chairman Pat Brady must therefore retract his support for same-sex marriage. He is dividing the Republican Party with his inappropriate actions."
"I have spoken with Chairman Brady by phone and will be reiterating this statement to him in a meeting early next week. The GOP Chairman must support the Republican Platform."
