Illinois Republican Party chairman Pat Brady has survived an attempt to oust him.
Although party leaders met for hours behind closed doors Saturday, there was apparently no vote on Brady’s future.
Some top party officials began pushing for Brady to be fired after he urged GOP lawmakers to support a same-sex marriage bill in the legislature.
But Brady’s opponents insist the fight is not about gay marriage, but about Brady’s willingness to break from the party’s platform on any issue.
Brady says he will not resign, but is also unlikely to seek another term as chairman next spring.
