Breaking: California Democratic Party Offers to Help Defeat Antigay Amendment One in North Carolina

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.

Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on President Obama’s Opposition to Discriminatory Same-Sex Marriage Ban in North Carolina:

California Democrats proudly support President Obama for taking a stand against a divisive ballot amendment that seeks to codify discrimination against same-sex couples into North Carolina’s constitution.

As Democrats across the nation make plans to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, it’s imperative that we send a clear and united message against all such efforts that seek to divide Americans and enshrine discrimination. California Democrats stand ready to help and we will soon be in touch with ways that Democrats here can start getting the word out to voters in North Carolina about the need to defeat Amendment One. (Emphasis mine)

You can blog about what you are truly passionate about and make money in the process.

When people enter certain keywords, blogs that contain those words will show up.

Nothing dampens the spirit faster than having to force yourself to write blog posts about something that you struggle
to come up with ideas for or that you are bored with.
