One of the driving forces behind the marriage amendment vote this month says the victory will spur proponents on to fight for other causes. The losing side sounded a similar battle cry the day after the election. Both sides say they will continue the momentum that built during the months-long statewide fight.
Tami Fitzgerald of Vote for Marriage N.C. emailed supporters today saying the victory helped fight same-sex marriage movements that are coming up in Maryland, Washington, Minnesota and Maine.
“But, friends, this was only a battle in the big picture of the war,” Fitzgerald said. “There are more issues to come that will need our dedication and support. It is no secret that our state and country are teetering on a slippery slope – and that we must rise up to fight battles such as this one, to protect our children and families.”
