Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska is “evolving” on the issue of gay marriage.

“The term 'evolving view' has been perhaps overused, but I think it is an appropriate term for me to use,” Murkowski is quoted as saying by the Chugiak-Eagle River Star. “I think it's important to acknowledge that there is a change afoot in this country in terms of how marriage is viewed.”

“It may be that Alaska will come to revisit its position on gay marriage, and as a policy maker I am certainly reviewing that very closely.”

Murkowski added that she had spoken to her two sons about the issue.

“I've got two young sons who, when I ask them and their friends how they feel about gay marriage, kinda give me one of those looks like, 'Gosh mom, why are you even asking that question?'”

Murkowski's comments come after Alaska Senator Mark Begich, a Democrat, endorsed marriage equality for the first time and Ohio Senator Rob Portman became the first sitting GOP senator to do the same.
