Appearing at a town hall in Las Vegas
on Thursday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton
was asked about her support for marriage equality.
At the MSNBC event, a self-identified
Bernie Sanders supporter told Clinton that she broke his heart by
opposing marriage rights for gay couples a decade ago. Clinton
endorsed marriage equality in 2013.
“I do respect you very much,” the
audience member said. “In fact, only a decade ago, I was a very
big supporter of yourself and your husband.”
“It actually broke my heart when you
said marriage was between a man and a woman. How can we trust that
this isn't just more political rhetoric?”
“I, like many Americans, have
evolved, and I'm glad I have. I'm a 100 percent supporter. I am
absolutely adamant about protecting marriage equality,” Clinton
