Speaker Thom Tillis, who pushed Amendment One through the legislature, told an inconvenient truth for his side yesterday.
Tillis, a leading proponent of Amendment One, admitted that the constitutional rewrite flies in the face of our future, acknowledging that the generation to come is adamantly opposed to the harms of Amendment One and he wants them to clean up the mess it creates.
Furthermore, Speaker Tillis indicated that Amendment One would barely pass in the present.
He told the truth about the future of this state — now it’s our turn to turn a narrowly-predicted victory for Amendment One into a defeat for this harmful amendment. Will you stand with us today and make an additional contribution of $20, $50, $100 or more? We can secure the future of North Carolina — and all of our families — by defeating Amendment One on May 8.
We’ve received information that the other side has begun to hire major national consultants who have made a career out of misinformation. We can expect them to gloss over the harms of Amendment One in the days and weeks ahead. That is why your support today is so important.
We asked that you participate in a weeklong moneybomb to push over the $1,000,000 mark and you responded! More than 700 donors just like you gave over $43,000 online in a little over 24 hours. Others were inspired by your amazing support and stepped up as well.
That's the good news.
The bad news is that we need to raise far more than that to push back against the misinformation from the other side.
Conservative support for the amendment has crumbled. John Hood, the leader of the extremely conservative John Locke Foundation, called Amendment One “unfair” and “unwise” yesterday. We must make sure that ALL North Carolinians hear that message.
Stand with us. With your support we can make sure that every North Carolinian hears the truth.
