State Sen. Pete Campos, D-Las Vegas, announced this morning that he is supporting legislation that allows gay and straight couples to form domestic partnerships. That was after a number of residents publicly urged him to back the bill.
"This was not an easy decision to make, but I am confident it is the right decision," Campos said in a statement. "The phone calls, e-mails and letters I received from people on both sides of the issue proved invaluable in my decision-making process."
He said he expected the legislation would come before the state Senate in days.
