Sen. Rob Portman reverses gay marriage position in CNN interview

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) to CNN chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash on reversing his gay marriage position, “I've come to the conclusion that for me, personally, I think this is something that we should allow people to do, to get married, and to have the joy and stability of marriage that I've had for over 26 years. That I want all of my children to have, including our son, who is gay.” On Friday, March 15, CNN's Dana Bash will appear across network programming to discuss her television exclusive with Sen. Portman.
