‘Respect for Marriage’ Coalition to Run New Ad to Capitalize on Marriage Equality Momentum: VIDEO


A new ad from the Respect for Marriage Coalition (HRC, Freedom to Marry, ACLU, others...) is set to run this week to take advantage of the growing momentum for same-sex marriage, Politico reports:

The $150,000 ad buy is the latest step in a $1 million campaign. The ads will be broadcast on stations in Washington, D.C., including the Sunday political talk shows and will air throughout next week on national cable.

“A growing majority of Americans have come to believe it’s time to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples. Here’s why,” the ad from the Respect for Marriage Coalition begins. The ad features regular Americans talking about their gay and lesbian relatives and friends. The ad ends with the line, “It’s time to give gay and lesbian couples the freedom to marry.”
