Sen. Lisa Murkowski may be the next Republican to embrace same-sex marriage. She said Wednesday her views are "evolving."

In a speech to the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, she said: "The term 'evolving view' has been perhaps overused, but I think it is an appropriate term for me to use," The Hill reports. "I think it's important to acknowledge that there is a change afoot in this country in terms of how marriage is viewed."
