Ads Want NC Lawmakers to Back Marriage Amendment
RALEIGH, N.C. – The legislative arm of a conservative Christian group is running radio ads urging listeners to ask certain state lawmakers to support a proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit gay marriage in North Carolina.
The group Family Research Council Action said it rolled out commercials on 20 radio stations that will air through Monday- the first day the General Assembly returns to Raleigh for a session on this and other amendments.
The ads target a dozen lawmakers. Voters statewide would consider the question if it’s approved by lawmakers.
Group Vice President Tom McClusky said it’s spending up to $10,000 on the ads, which will also ask listeners to attend a rally Monday morning in Raleigh. Opponents of the amendment also are running phone banks and holding a rally Tuesday.
