I’ve got some breaking news that could blow up the presidential contest: We have just launched a powerful new television commercial in South Carolina taking on Donald Trump for abandoning the fight for marriage even though 78% of South Carolina voters (and 50 million voters in other states) cast ballots deciding that marriage should be only one man and one woman.
This powerful new commercial could really make a difference in who wins in South Carolina. Most experts believe that the South Carolina race will come down to Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz. When it comes to marriage, the two couldn’t be further apart. Donald Trump dumped the fight for marriage as soon as the US Supreme Court issued its illegitimate and anti-constitutional ruling, while Ted Cruz responded by sponsoring a constitutional amendment to restore the right of states to preserve true marriage.
As the ad makes clear, when Donald Trump quit on the fight for marriage, he quit on South Carolina and over 50 million voters across the nation who cast ballots defining marriage as one man and one woman. The ad urges South Carolinians to “Dump Trump.”
Keep in mind that the marriage amendment passed in South Carolina with 78% of the overall vote. However, it likely got upwards of 90% of the vote among Republicans who will be voting for president on February 20th. Clearly, the ad could cause some serious damage to the Trump campaign and thus help propel forward other pro-marriage candidates like Sen. Ted Cruz.
