I e-mailed the Kerry campaign and got an instant response:
John Kerry is The Real Deal and the one who can Win!
He's won 19 of 21 primary contests and delegates in every one. The race is far from over, stand up join us today.
Thank you for sending John Kerry your thoughts about gay and lesbian issues. With a 100% rating from the Human Rights Campaign since 1995, John Kerry is a powerful voice in the ongoing fight for civil rights for gay and lesbian Americans.
John Kerry believes President Bush is wrong. All Americans should be concerned when a President who is in political trouble tries to tamper with the Constitution of the United States at the start of his reelection campaign.
While John Kerry believes marriage is between a man and a woman, for 200 years, this has been a state issue. He opposes this election year effort to amend the Constitution in an area that each state can adequately address, and he will vote against such an amendment if it comes to the Senate floor.
John Kerry believes the best way to protect gays and lesbians is through civil unions. He believes the issue of marriage should be left to the states, and that the President of the United States should be addressing the central challenges where he has failed - jobs, health care, and our leadership in the world rather than once again seeking to drive a wedge by toying with the United States Constitution for political purposes.
