Nevada GOP Abandons Opposition to Gay Marriage, Abortion

"Amid raucous debate, Nevada Republican Party conventioneers on Saturday stripped opposition to gay marriage and abortion from the party platform and endorsed Gov. Brian Sandoval for governor in the June 10 primary despite misgivings by conservatives, his criticism of the process and his absence from the meeting," the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

"Republicans who sat on the platform committee said they decided not to deal with social issues this year because the U.S. Supreme Court and lower courts have weighed in and it doesn't make sense for the party of 'personal freedom' to have the government or the political party get involved in people's personal lives."
