Probably the same ad from back then.....they have nothing new and their hoping that the old message will do......hopefully it won't because Supporters of the bill have been canvasing the folks for the last three years, but we will see soon enough.

Hopefully we pick up at least one State at the ballot box, but I hope it will be at least 2!!!

What, is it a surprise that the anti-equality side would blow things out of proportion an lie?

Here's a clue--if you have to lie about what you're selling, you're selling a lie.

But, of course, that's WAY over the heads of those that believe they get to vote on who other people are allowed to marry....

The good news is polling shows marriage equality still leading in Washington & Maine despite a month of negative anti-gay ads.

A poll out today in Washinton shows support for Ref 74 at 58-38. Significantly among those who have already voted (all mail in votes there), Ref 74 is passing 60-40!

Of course the final numbers will likely be much closer, but I remain hopeful that both Washington & Maine will finally break our losing streak.

On the other hand, Maryland & Minnesota will likely be losses.

I guess we'll know in 5 days.
