President Obama made history on Wednesday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to endorse same-sex marriage.  Nevada is embroiled in its own same-sex debate.  Our state offers domestic partnerships, but local same-sex couples recently joined a federal lawsuit seeking the right to marry.  So what's next for Nevada?  Politicians suggest they may bring it up for a vote again, but conservative pro-family groups aren't happy about that.  Experts join us to talk about the pros and cons of the debate, plus two locals share their stories of why they want a same-sex marriage.
