FILE - In this Nov. 9, 2009 file photo, Illinois Republican Chairman Pat Brady speaks at a news conference in Chicago. On Saturday, March 9, 2013, the Illinois Republican Party’s state central committee will hold a special meeting where they are expected to fire Brady, in large part because he spoke out in favor of a bill to end Illinois’ ban on gay marriage.
