Today is Primary Day


Dear Marriage Supporter,

We promised that we would hold accountable all the politicians in Albany who betrayed us on marriage. We have delivered on our promise to not let the actions of those who flip-flopped and voted against the will of the people be forgotten.

We have fought the good fight, in the name of honor and integrity across New York State—but today we need your help to finish the job!

Today is Primary Day in New York.

All the political forecasts say that turnout will be historically low today.

We must ensure that all supporters of traditional marriage come out to vote and provide the final rally cry against those who silenced the voices of New Yorkers and sold out for money and their own personal gain.

Here is a list of candidates running in today’s primary who have pledged to stand with us on the issue of marriage. All of these candidates are in close fights against incumbents who have wronged us and must be held accountable.

Please review the list, and if you live in one of these districts, please make it a priority to vote today. If you know someone who lives in one of these districts, please forward this message to them immediately! Together, we can get this done!

SENATE DISTRICT 10 (Jamaica and southern Queens)

SENATE DISTRICT 33 (Northwest Bronx including Kingsbridge Heights, East Tremont, Crotona Park, Fordham, Bedford Park and parts of Riverdale)

SENATE DISTRICT 41 (parts of Dutchess and Putnam Counties)

SENATE DISTRICT 43 (Rensselaer and Columbia Counties and parts of Saratoga and Washington Counties)

SENATE DISTRICT 60 (Parts of Western Erie County including parts of the City of Buffalo, Grand Island and Tonawanda)

Thank you again for your continued support. As promised, NOM is continuing the fight in New York after already standing down Jim Alesi from his plans to run for reelection. Please help us today to defeat the rest of the senators who betrayed us and all New Yorkers, and together we will restore integrity in Albany!

    I'm going to predict that 3 of the incumbent state senators will lose to their challengers.

    Thank you, Nom, for the focus on accountablity. When politicians stand against marriage, they will pay the political price electorally.

    This was great work NOM did in New York.

    Here's hoping and praying it can yield a shocking outcome.

    McDonald's in a tight one.

    So with 90 percent reporting in Saratoga, McDonald is up 3,173-3,016. Another close one. McDonald and Saland facing tough re-elections #ssm

    Saland and McDonald are in photo-finishes.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Grisanti is going to win.

    Thanks for the updates Rick. Did Saland win?

    State Senate District 41 GOP - Primary
    266 of 266 precincts - 100 percent
    Stephen Saland (i) 4,969 - 50 percent
    Neil DiCarlo 4,927 - 50 percent

    Saland and McDonald's races will likely be subject to recounts but based on current numbers Saland won and McDonald lost. Also Grisanti and Gustavo clearly won while Huntley clearly lost.
