LAS VEGAS (AP) - 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.
Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative 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.

If you stand for nothing...
What “GOP values”?
Being as much like Democrats as we can possibly be.
No backbone weasels! A feather would knock over these wusses.
Why would anyone vote for that??
If the GOP gets stomped, they will have deserved it
Any Republican that disregards social issues are dead to me.
So, as a social conservative, remind again why I should vote Republican.
The biggest enemies of social conservatives are liberal Republicans. They insist that we drop our “purist” stances so that the Party can win. But, if they win, they won’t adopt our positions. They want our votes, but not our values.
And don’t threaten me by saying that things will get worse if we don’t vote for the GOP-e. Things already have gotten worse. Liberal Republicans espouse views that are the polar opposite of mine with regard to the issues that are most important to me. If you don’t run a conservative, don’t expect my vote. I have gardening to do.
stomped like Sharron Angle?
The GOP has no values.
GOP scumbags should rot
They fight against their own candidates if they are conservative and now show their true colors. And it’s not red, white and blue!
I think the Nevada GOP is just formalizing what the national GOP already thinks.
If Republicans already don’t do anything about illegal immigration, or the massive expansion of the federal government, then they throw in the towel on social issues, why would anyone vote for them?
It’s Nevada polygamy is next!
Effing idiot GOP
I judge Republicans on their adherence to GOP values like abortion and traditional marriage. And these idiots wonder why the base stays home.
So when Gays sue Christians for not celebrating their lifestyle the Nevada GOP will stand with the Gays...
when Gays advocate hate crimes legislation regulating speech the Nevada GOP will support the Gays...
When the Abortion industry demands taxpayer funded abortions and birth control the Nevada GOP will stand with the abortion industry..
The RNC is in talks with Kris Jenner about recruiting Kim to run for president, or Khloe if Kim won’t.
