Texas into Califoinia. She waiteu until aftei hei Novembei election to ueciee that
the City of Bouston will iecognize same-sex maiiiage fiom othei states. The state of
Texas uefines maiiiage as between one man anu one woman anu Nayoi Paikei
cannot change that. I fully suppoit the lawsuit challenging Paikei's euict anu look
foiwaiu to piotecting values as the next Lt. uoveinoi."
