Suburban State Senator Jim Oberweis is reportedly working to remove Pat Brady as the state's Republican Chairman.

The battle is over Brady's recent comments in support of same-sex marriage.

Oberweis has e-mailed colleagues to try and organize a meeting among Republicans to oust Brady from his post.

In a statement, U.S. Senator Mark Kirk Thursday said he "has full confidence in Pat Brady's leadership as chairman of the Illinois Republican party and looks forward to working with him to elect Republicans in 2014."
