I’m not sure I recall another time when a state political party has offered to reach out to another state – let alone across the country – to help defeat an antigay measure such as the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage and eliminate domestic partnerships in North Carolina. I presume the Coalition to Protect All Families will welcome this just released news from the Chair of the California Democratic Party and call the North Carolina Democratic Party to see how they can team up for a Get Out The Vote and defeat Amendment One in the May 8 election, which will also see the GOP Primary and statewide contests.
