Dole is going to go down hard here, but I laughed at this because as you might recall, I was dissed by the Hagan campaign for simply asking how she'd vote on pending legislation re: LGBT issues. There was no need to worry about hiding from the questions because I knew the GOP was going to eventually bring it up anyway -- you might as well be on the right side of the issues -- and the community you will eventually ask for $upport from. Sen. Hagan's liveblog response back in April:
Pam - I'm close to John Edwards on this - I believe marriage is between a man and a woman and that it's fundamentally a state issue the federal government has no business getting involved in. But I take a back seat to no one when it comes to equal opportunity and fairness. I oppose ANY form of discrimination and I believe that partnerships should be protected when it comes to financial issues, hospital visits, employment, and housing issues.
We don't have an amendment because our General Assembly is Dem-controlled, not because Kay Hagan supports marriage equality. But facts, even if they are disappointing for us, don't matter to the North Carolina GOP - they have a lousy candidate with a crap record who's doing poorly in the polls, so it's time to drag out the homostrawman.
