Las Vegas, NV – Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement today after Governor Brian Sandoval reaffirmed his position against marriage equality: 
“The Governor is wrong on this issue. The fight for marriage equality is not about special rights for a few, but equal rights for all. This is the wrong message to send to the thousands of Nevadans who want their loving relationships recognized the same as those of their straight friends and neighbors. I am not alone in believing that the State of Nevada needs to remove discrimination from our Constitution. A clear majority of Nevadans believe in marriage equality. I will continue to advocate against discrimination and unequal treatment under the law at all levels of government. Nevada has a rich history of welcoming loving couples from across our great country to join in marriage. Our LGBT friends and relatives should be treated no differently.”
