GOP Sen. Mark Kirk Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Sen. Mark Kirk, R-IL, announced Tuesday that he supports same-sex marriage, the second Republican senator to embrace marriage equality.
“Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage,” Kirk said in a statement.
”Our time on this earth is limited, I know that better than most. Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back— government has no place in the middle.”
Last month, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman became the first Republican senator to support gay marriage.
Earlier Tuesday, Delaware’s Tom Carper becomes latest Senate Democrat to support gay marriage.
