GOP senator comes out in support of gay marriage


Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, say his son’s coming out in 2011 gave him “new perspective” on the issue of gay marriage, but Michael Eric Dyson asks the senator why it took him so long, and why he needed a personal experience to figure out how to do the right thing. Wilson Cruz, national spokesperson for GLAAD, joins Michael Eric Dyson to discuss Sen. Portman’s change of heart and House Speaker John Boehner continuing the GOP’s status quo on gay rights.
