Americans more accepting of gay marriage

The Takeaway

For a majority of Americans to say they are in favor of legalizing gay marriage, some people must have changed their minds. The Takeaway talks to two people who changed their minds about gay marriage.

Last year, Louis Marinelli helped organize the 2010 Summer for Marriage Tour, which stood in opposition to gay marriage. This year, Louis is leading the Summer for Marriage Equality Tour. The Takeaway talks with Marinelli and Jeff Angelo, a former Iowa State Senator and Republican who once opposed to gay marriage, but has since founded Iowa Republicans for Freedom, an organization that supports marriage equality.
