CHICAGO—Efforts to remove Illinois Republican Party Chair Pat Brady over his support of same-sex marriage appear to have stalled.
Members of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee had scheduled a special meeting on March 9 to discuss Brady’s termination, but they abruptly cancelled it the day before. The Associated Press reported committeemen made the move in part because they did not have enough votes to oust Brady.
The Illinois House Executive Committee late last month approved a gay marriage bill that previously passed in the state Senate.
The full House of Representatives is expected to vote on the proposal in the coming days or weeks.
