Arizona Daily Star Endorses No on Prop 102

The Arizona Daily Star this morning urges its readers to vote no on Prop 102:

Proposition 102 is a divisive, discriminatory initiative that would threaten to erode the rights of same-sex couples if approved.

FYI… The current link for the “Tucson Citizen” is a “guest opinion” by Peter Likins, president emeritus of the University of Arizona.

The actual link to the “Editorial Board’s” endorsement of “NO” on Prop. 102 is here.
