(Washington, DC) — Senator Harry Reid says he would vote to overturn the ban on gay marriage in Nevada. At a news conference yesterday, Reid said he was persuaded by younger members of his family to reconsider his opposition to same-sex marriage. Earlier this week, the Senate’s majority leader said he believed marriage was between a man and a woman. But Reid now says he would “follow my grandchildren and my children,” and vote to repeal Nevada’s constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriages.
