"Many people think that Ron Paul is a conservative, but his 'anything goes' position on marriage isn't conservative—it's radical." —Brian Brown, NOM President—

Manchester, NH – The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today announced that it is mounting a $50,000 independent expenditure effort in New Hampshire to educate state voters about Ron Paul's "unacceptable" position on marriage. The group began running television commercials online last Friday, as well as calling tens of thousands of voters to bring Paul's position to the attention of voters.

"Many people think that Ron Paul is a conservative, but his 'anything goes' position on marriage isn't conservative—it's radical," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "NOM helped drop Paul from first to third in Iowa, and we are committed to making sure that New Hampshire voters know the truth about Ron Paul's views on marriage."

Paul is the only major candidate in the race to refuse to sign NOM's Marriage Pledge, committing himself to take specific actions as president to support marriage. Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry have each signed NOM's pledge. Paul has said "sure" to gay marriage. He even believes that civil marriage should be eliminated altogether.

"We encourage voters to go to to learn more about Ron Paul's dangerous position on marriage. We have not endorsed a candidate in the race and support each of those who have signed our pledge. However, Ron Paul is unacceptable as a Republican nominee and we urge New Hampshire voters to reject him on Tuesday."

NOM will continue its campaign against Paul in South Carolina and other states.

    Thank you for your very good work in this. I feel the people need to know, who, and what, they are voting for. There is a battle raging in our land between right and wrong. Thanks again.

    A radical calling someone else a radical? This will prove to be another Granite State failure for NOM.

    After seeing Ron Paul's vicious (and lie-ridden) attack ad against Sen. Santorum aired in SC, I'm ready to see NOM, and anyone else, bring down that dangerous radical called Ron Paul.

    Bobby: In a campaign, you win a few and lose a few. It's the overall trend that matters. Don't like to remember the 31 States with marriage amendments, do you. You seem very mad about the whole thing.

    NOM forgot to include another signer of the NOM pledge: Gingrich

    Hopefully after these next few primaries he will be gone after losing at the ballot box.

    People here in NH are ignoring your campaign. Same sex marriage is not a big issue. Looks like Santorum is coming in 5th.

    Herb S: No, herb (is that a plant?), New Hampshire is not ignoring NOM, overall. Romney is against same-sex civil marriages, and he's not coming in 5th in NH. Obviously, you are not ignoring it either, since you read this post and commented. Every little political action helps, and it's just the Primaries.
