Dear Marriage Supporter
As you know, NOM has endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for president because Cruz will be a champion for marriage. He has signed NOM's Presidential Marriage Pledge, is the author of a proposed constitutional amendment to restore to states the right to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and is a co-author of federal legislation to protect the rights of marriage supporters to live out their beliefs about marriage at home and at work without fear of being punished by the government. We are opposed to Donald Trump because Trump has abandoned the fight for marriage and cannot be trusted to work as president to restore marriage to our laws.
Last week a key difference between Cruz and Trump emerged over the issue of allowing men to use intimate facilities like restrooms and showers that are reserved for girls and women, simply by claiming a female "gender identity." Trump displayed his New York values when he announced his opposition to efforts in North Carolina and elsewhere to protect the privacy and safety of girls and women, and said that Bruce ("Caitlyn") Jenner would be welcome to use the women's restrooms in Trump Tower.
In response, Senator Cruz not only affirmed his support for state efforts to ward off this dangerous gender ideology that is being pushed by LGBT extremists, but produced an online ad highlighting his difference with Trump.
Tomorrow is a critical day as several northeastern states vote, including Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. NOM urges all our supporters in these states to vote for Ted Cruz. If you have friends or family members who live in one of these states, please ask them to support Sen. Ted Cruz.
The northeast is Donald Trump's strongest region, and he is ahead in these states. However, a strong push for Sen. Cruz could result in Cruz picking up some delegates that could contribute to Trump failing to secure the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination on the first ballot. Every vote matters, and we urge you to do everything you can to reach people in one of these states to urge a vote for Sen. Cruz.
Thank you for your support of NOM and for your continuing efforts to defend marriage and the rights of people to live out the truth of marriage at work and in their daily lives.
