Why are 9 Senate Democrats still holding out on same-sex marriage?

With the recent upswing in popularity of same-sex marriage and the issue coming to the forefront once again as the Supreme Court takes up the issue, politicians are also trying to keep pace.

You’ve heard of course Rob Portman and other republicans changing their stands, but as of last November, 17 Senate Democrats still opposed same-sex marriage. Just this week that number dwindled to nine but still includes Bob Casey of Pennsylvania among others.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Adrian Shanker, president of Equality Pennsylvania, to discuss the issue.
