ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is reacting to a county clerk's office's issuing of marriage licenses to dozens of same-sex couples by repeating her call for a statewide vote on a constitutional amendment.
Martinez is an opponent of same-sex marriage and she says she continues to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.
The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/15cWSUL) reports that a statement that Martinez issued Wednesday says any change regarding marriage should be made by the people of New Mexico.
The Dona Ana County Clerk's office starting issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Wednesday and issued more than 40 before closing for the day.
