Rob Portman

A veteran member of Congress from the state of Ohio has done a 180 on same-sex marriage and explains the reason for his change of heart.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has the story from Washington:

Senator Rob Portman carries Conservative credentials and was on Mitt Romney's short list for running mates, but on the issue of same-sex marriage, the Ohio Republican tells CNN he's had a change of heart.

(Sen. Portman) "My son came to Jane, my wife, and I, told us that he was gay and that it was not a choice, that it's just part of who he is."

That conversation was two years ago.  Portman has voted for a ban on gay adoptions and for the Defense of Marriage Act.
