"New Ad Campaign Highlights Bipartisan Support For Marriage Equality"

The Respect for Marriage Coalition, headed up by Freedom To Marry and the Human Rights Campaign, is rolling out a new multi-million dollar national ad campaign for marriage equality, including television spots, full-page newspaper ads, and online banner ads. The “#Time4Marriage” campaign features Former First Lady Laura Bush, Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Former Vice President Dick Cheney, and President Obama all endorsing marriage equality:

BUSH: When couples are committed to each other and love each other then they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has.

POWELL: Allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country.

CHENEY: Freedom means freedom for everyone.

OBAMA: Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.

Watch it:

Full-page print versions will run in national newspapers like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.

Polls have consistently shown that a majority of Americans support marriage equality, including two new polls released yesterday.
