USA, Nevada: GOP Drops Opposition to Marriage Equality

Written by scott on April 14th, 2014

Nevada mapThe Nevada GOP just voted to drop opposition to abortion and marriage equality from its party platform.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.

Is it a fluke, or are conservatives slowly moving to support marriage equality? Will we see this replicated in other states in time for 2016?
