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 I 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.
