Nevada Republican Platform Shows Glaring Omissions

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Longtime conservative social issues of abortion and gay marriage were stripped from the Nevada Republican Party platform by delegates to the state convention in Las Vegas.

The omissions mirror that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.

Many Republicans are reevaluating their strong stances on social issues as public opinion shifts in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage.

The topics have become a political liability for the GOP, especially among younger voters, and don't fit with the overall Republican belief in personal liberty.
