California Dems join the fight against NC’s Amendment One

The Chair of the California Democratic Party is offering to team-up with North Carolina’s Democratic Party to see how they can Get Out The Vote and defeat Amendment One on May 8th.

Here’s the statement from Chairman John Burton:

“California Democrats proudly support President Obama for taking a stand against a divisive ballot amendment that seeks to codify discrimination against same-sex couples into North Carolina’s constitution.

As Democrats across the nation make plans to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, it’s imperative that we send a clear and united message against all such efforts that seek to divide Americans and enshrine discrimination. California Democrats stand ready to help and we will soon be in touch with ways that Democrats here can start getting the word out to voters in North Carolina about the need to defeat Amendment One.”

    I thought the Democrats were the losers in this vote. I think I would talk to someone who had won on this issue.
