Cal Cunningham, who announced last week the time was not right to run for lieutenant governor, is back in the headlines this week. The former U.S. senate candidate is now appearing in a You Tube video with his wife, Elizabeth, speaking out against Amendment One.
Cunningham says the ballot initiative banning gay marriage has real and unitended consequences for all North Carolinians.
“It’s okay to wrestle in your heart and with your faith about marriage and civil unions and partnerships. But writing discrimination into our state Constitution is plain wrong,” explains Cunningham in the video.
Cunningham is a former Davidson County state senator and Afghanistan war veteran.
