As the countdown to Election Day continues, Washington's R-74 has received a major endorsement - from the leader of the free world.
As was noted by a press release sent out by Washington United for Marriage not long ago, Paul Bell, the Washington Press Secretary for Obama for America, has issued a statement giving the president's seal of approval to marriage equality efforts in our state.
Here's Bell's statement:
"While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. Washington's same-sex marriage law would treat all Washington couples equally, and that is why the President supports a vote to approve Referendum 74."
And here's what Washington United for Marriage Campaign Manager Zach Silk has to say about it:
"President Obama support for marriage reflects what's happening in WA and across the country. As more people, and more voters, realize that only marriage fully protects and supports families, they move towards supporting marriage for same-sex couples and approving Referendum 74. "We're now in the home stretch, mobilizing thousands of volunteers with the largest ground game in Washington ballot history. We feel momentum is on our side, and having the President weigh in on approving Referendum 74 puts an extra gust of wind in our sails."
