Republican Senator Steps Down As Maryland Minority Leader

Play associated audio

Maryland's Senate minority leader is stepping down. Republican Sen. Allan Kittleman, who represents Howard County, says he's decided to move aside because he holds more moderate views on social issues than a majority of the members of the Senate Republican caucus.

Kittleman is working on legislation to allow civil unions for both same-sex and opposite-sex couples that would give them the same rights married couples currently enjoy.

The senator says he hasn't decided yet whether to introduce the measure. The Senate Republican caucus is expected to choose a new minority leader on Friday.
