26 Mar New Hampshire Takes The Stage
The New Hampshire House voted this morning to reject the same-sex marriage bill on a 183-182 roll call vote, only to reverse position moments later on a motion to reconsider. On motion to reconsider, proponents successfully pressured 3 representatives to change their votes. The bill then passed the House by a 186-179 margin and is now headed to the Senate.
Just three weeks ago, we were expected to lose by a wide margin in the New Hampshire House, but because of your efforts very nearly pulled off a shocking upset victory. Those on the ground in New Hampshire are telling us that your efforts — contacting NH legislators and supporting the NOM Northeast Action plan — were critical as we were able to send thousands of emails to New Hampshire lawmakers and run radio ads throughout the state.
Unfortunately, a loss is still a loss, and we have lots of work ahead in the Senate. Please join us in contacting the NH Senate today.
