With the Supreme Court building draped in a photo-realistic sheet during a repair and preservation project, the justices met today to consider hearing several cases dealing with the rights of gay couples who are married, want to get married or are in domestic partnerships.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court takes up gay marriage but this morning we talk about how this debate could change Republican fund raising. According to a recent Pew poll, 49 percent of Americans now support same sex marriage. That statistic includes a growing number of Republicans, and - according a recent article in Politico - many GOP fund raisers believe this shift in views could mean an influx in cash in places like California, New York and Florida.
