A Quiet Republican for Same-Sex Marriage

One more note about the attempt to cobble together one more Republican to support same-sex marriage: the effort won’t include Jim Alesi, who supports the bill.

Before entering this morning’s Republican State Senate conference meeting, Alesi told reporters he supports legalizing same-sex marriage, but felt it would be inappropriate to lobby his  colleagues on the matter.

“I’m not going to debate with my colleagues,” he said. “I have not lobbied my colleagues in my conference.”

“We all know each other and I don’t think that would be the appropriate course of action. They know how I feel and why I feel the way I do,” Alesi said.
