Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said this week his son coming out as gay led him to reconsider his opposition to marriage equality. "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," Portman told CNN. Portman is the first Republican in the Senate to announce his support for legal marriage for same-sex couples, a move applauded by Log Cabin Republicans and Freedom to Marry.
