Cooper says he'll vote against marriage amendment

Attorney General Roy Cooper announced today that he’s against the marriage amendment. While several other statewide Democratic officeholders have come out against the referendum, this is the first time Cooper has weighed in. 

 "I am writing you today to let you know I am voting against Amendment One in next month's primary elections on May 8th. I believe it is unclear, unwise and unnecessary. Amending our constitution demands careful deliberation along with precise language - both are missing here.  Amendment One's lack of clarity will also result in a significant amount of litigation on many issues which will be decided by courts for years to come. This should be avoided. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Attorney General and letting me share my thoughts with you about this issue.
