One of two ballot measures involving gay marriage is drawing support on two fronts. Coloradans for Marriage is backing a proposal to define marriage in the Colorado Constitution as a heterosexual union. It's hoping church leaders will urge congregants to vote for it during Sunday services in October. And the political arm of Focus on the Family is bankrolling a group, the Colorado Family Action, that will support the measure through television ads.
Coloradans for Marriage executive director Jon Paul says his campaign does NOT plan to buy media time, instead relying on two-thousand volunteers and four full-time employees.
The second measure on the ballot is Referendum I, which would allow gay couples to register as domestic partners and receive many legal rights and responsibilities given to married couples.
