Illinois GOP leader will keep job amid party tensions

Illinois' top Republican leader will keep his job, despite calls for him to be ousted.

This weekend, the party's state central committee did not vote to remove Pat Brady as the state party leader.

About 50 GOP members had called for Brady to be removed after he recently voiced support for same sex marriage.

Brady says he has no intention of stepping down before his term ends next year.
