Former President Bill Clinton might be calling you.
Opponents of the marriage amendment on Tuesday's ballot today announced that Clinton has recorded a robo-call message that will be going to North Carolinians.
Here's what he says:
"Hello, this is President Bill Clinton. I’m calling to urge you to vote against Amendment One on Tuesday May 8. If it passes, it won’t change North Carolina’s law on marriage. What it will change is North Carolina’s ability to keep good businesses, attract new jobs, and attract and keep talented entrepreneurs. If it passes, your ability to keep those businesses, get those jobs, and get those talented entrepreneurs will be weakened. And losing even one job to Amendment One is too big of a risk. Its passage will also take away health insurance from children and could even take away domestic violence protections from women. So the real effect of the law is not to keep the traditional definition of marriage, you’ve already done that. The real effect of the law will be to hurt families and drive away jobs. North Carolina can do better. Again, this is Bill Clinton asking you to please vote against Amendment One. Thanks."
Protect All NC Families, the group organizing the campaign against the amendment, told The Associated Press that the calls would go to hundreds of thousands of people.
