They have more than 2,000 donors who have given $92 on average. They have more than 15,000 volunteers and are making 20,000 voter calls per week. Senator Kay Hagan, Lt. Governor Walter Dalton, the conservative Carolina Review, libertarian thinker Michael Munger, Myers Park Baptist and others have come out in opposition to the amendment in recent weeks.
