We're eight days away from the North Carolina primary election where voters will also decide whether or not to ratify a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, etc. Our side is pulling out all of the stops to win this sucker and, with your help, it's do-able.

Today I put out a tweet to tell everyone that I'm participating in a very special fundraiser to benefit our side. I'll donate $1 for every new Twitter follower Thumbnail image for NC-Protect-kids-ad.jpgI get today before midnight Eastern time. The starting number was 5,304. You can follow me here - and be sure to retweet and tell your friends. Some folks are offering matching funds for each new follower I get; if you decide to participate as a matching funder, let me know and I'll (re)tweet the news. Of course, you can always donate directly to the campaign.

Also participating in this unique fundraiser: @adamjbink, @davidbadash, @dmcrawford, @joesudbay, @pamspaulding, @indiemcemopants, @tedeytan, @LizzWinstead, @clarknt67, @tlanehudson, @AndySzekeres, @kathyplate, @robynochs, @richferraro, @andekelley, @bilerico, @cooper888, @toddbeeton, @goodasyou, @KTravisBallie, @nathanhjb, @juliarosen, @denisdison, @notfakeandrew, @CourageCampaign, @davidhalldc, khj, @laurelramseyer, @pullenparkqueer, @allisonpalmer, @camerontolle, @alb68, @HRC, @TNEquality, @quietis, @rickjacobs, GetEQUAL.

In related news, Protect North Carolina Families has released a new television ad that's now airing in the Tarheel state. They've also put out an online-only ad. They're both after the break.
