The Advocate tells the backstory of the two latest ads from Republicans Against 8.
Schmidt said the effort is an example of the “unprecedented cooperation in the gay community to beat Prop. 8. I am a Republican, Lance Black isn’t one. … It doesn’t matter who you are — Democrat, Republican, Trojan, Bruin — we want to work together to accomplish the same goal.”
The two ads feature an impressive roster of everyday gay citizens, including a Vietnam veteran and a Boeing rocket scientist, two people who say they have devoted their careers to protecting the rights and lives of Americans. The ads urge Californians to now step up and return the favor on November 4.
