The race for our state’s second highest office—Lieutenant Governor—features two very distinct candidates.
Linda Coleman is a union-backed career politician and former aide to Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue and Dan Forest is a conservative businessman who is a champion of inequality.
The News & Observer reported that “Coleman started by vociferously denouncing ‘forces of prejudice’ and calling the marriage amendment a distraction.” Linda Coleman spoke out against the Marriage Amendment that we worked so hard to defeat last spring, acting as a spokesperson for Equality NC.
And Indy Week reported Coleman as saying “I support civil unions. We need to change the law to allow people to live together.”
But Dan Forest, on the other hand, championed the issue of inequality: “Yes, I support marriage only between one man and one woman as God intended.”
You can’t get any clearer than that. We encourage you to vote for equality…again.
