Fred DuVal on Civil Rights
Strongly supports marriage equality
Q: If the public votes to support same sex marriage--as Governor, will you?
A: I strongly support marriage equality and equal rights for all Arizonans. As governor, if the courts have not thrown out our ban on marriage equality,
I will use the bully pulpit to make sure marriage equality becomes a reality in Arizona in 2016.

Criticized anti-gay legislation
DuVal said lawmakers earned between a D (for "disappointing") and F (for "failure") for recently completed legislative session. DuVal called for more dollars for education and child-welfare programs; said he was opposed to expanding programs that
provide public dollars for private schools; criticized lawmakers for passing anti-gay and anti-abortion legislation; and promised to reverse Gov. Jan Brewer's push to deny driver's licenses and in-state tuition for DREAM Act kids.
