Former President Bill Clinton is joining the fight against Florida's Amendment 2! About 250,000 Democrats who have not yet voted will receive a telephone call today from Clinton asking them to vote NO on Amendment 2, the so-called "Marriage Protection" Amendment.
Florida Red & Blue, which paid for the calls, had this to say about Clinton's support:
President Clinton is well liked and deeply respected by Florida Democrats. We're delighted to be able to add his powerful voice to the chorus of opposition to Amendment 2.
Transcript of the call after the jump...
President Clinton says this on the call:
Hello, this is President Bill Clinton.
I'm calling my friends in Florida today to ask you to vote "no" on Amendment 2.
Amendment 2 could actually keep people from visiting each other in hospitals or interfere with other health care decisions.
That's why Barack Obama, Hillary and I all oppose it. Please stay in the voting booth until you find Amendment 2 and vote no.
Thank you so much for helping us defeat Amendment 2 with your no vote.
Clinton is hugely popular in Florida, so this call could have an amazing effect on the outcome of tomorrow's vote!
