"Arizona May See 2014 Marriage Equality Campaign"

Tanner Pritts of Scottsdale, Arizona has taken up the reins to advance marriage equality in his state. He has formed a group called Arizona Advocates for Marriage Equality and filed the necessary paperwork to begin fundraising for a 2014 ballot initiative campaign. So far, Pritts, a 22-year-old political novice, is operating independently, but he is working to build a coalition with other LGBT groups. Prior to this year’s election, Arizona had the distinction of being the only state where voters defeated an anti-gay amendment, voting in 2006 not to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions. However, in 2008, an amendment that only targeted marriage successfully passed, and it is that amendment Pritts hopes to overturn.
