The Campaign for Working Families, Gary Bauer's Super PAC, is launching a new ad today in North Carolina:
Romney now holds a 2-point lead over Obama in North Carolina, according to the RCP average of polls. But if the election were a referendum on marriage, Romney would be winning by more than 20 points. On May 8, 2012, North Carolinians voted 61 percent to 39 percent in favor of amending their state's constitution to affirm that marriage is an institution between one man and one woman. The next day, Obama endorsed gay marriage.
"Just hours after 61 percent of North Carolinians cast their ballots in support of normal marriage, Barack Obama insisted they were bigots when he publicly endorsed same-sex marriage," Gary Bauer says in a statement. "It was a slap in the face to the good and decent people of North Carolina, whose state is hosting the Democratic National Convention this week."
"The newly adopted position of the Democratic Party that undermines the definition marriage as one man and one woman is also a slap in the face to the voters of 30 other states who, like North Carolinians, voted to protect and preserve the common sense definition of marriage. Barack Obama has spent four years undermining the values of the vast majority of Americans. Our ads will remind swing voters how Barack Obama has used his power and abused their trust to promote a radical agenda they did not vote for."
