Oberweis falls short of meeting support
State Sen. Jim Oberweis hasn’t received the support he needed to convene a meeting to discuss views that Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady has expressed on same-sex marriage.
Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, said Wednesday he had reserved a conference room at the Hampton Inn in Aurora using his own money. The meeting was scheduled for Saturday, but Oberweis only got three of the five votes he needed from committeemen to have the meeting.
In January, Oberweis started seeking support from Republican lawmakers to meet and discuss Brady’s open support of same-sex marriage. Brady said he was expressing support for same-sex marriage in a personal capacity, rather than as Illinois GOP chairman.
