Hagan comes out against same-sex marriage ban

Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan has come out against the constitutional amendment banning same sex marriages, saying it would harm North Carolina's business climate.

In a statement released Wednesday to the gay press and groups, Hagan voiced her opposition to the amendment that will be on the May 8th ballot and urged all North Carolinians to vote against it..

“In today's hyper partisan political environment,” Hagan said in a statement, “I view any attempt to alter our state constitution with a critical eye.

“Amendment One has far-reaching negative consequences for our families, our children and our communities,” she said. “North Carolina is one of the most business-friendly states in the nation, and this amendment would harm our state's ability to recruit the innovators and businesses that are driving our economic recovery. Jobs are my number one priority, and we cannot afford to take our eye of the ball and give businesses a reason to grow and expand elsewhere.''
