Honk for Marriage! Have you seen the Values Voter Bus?


$100,000 Challenge

Thanks for helping to get our Values Voter Bus Tour off to a great start yesterday!

Joined in Des Moines by Governor Tim Pawlenty, one of our Presidential Marriage pledge signers, the day included rallies in Oskaloosa, Washington, Muscatine, and Davenport before wrapping up in Iowa City.

As the 22-stop tour continues, we look forward to having Rep. Michele Bachmann, Sen. Rick Santorum, and Rep. Thaddeus McCotter join us, as well as Congressmen Steve King (R-IA) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

If you haven't already done so, I hope you'll find a tour stop near you and come out and join us as we hear from these national leaders first-hand about the importance of protecting marriage and the family everywhere from rural Iowa to Washington, D.C. Together, we are rallying Iowans to stand up for marriage, urging them to support pro-marriage candidates at the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday. So bring your friends, grab a lawn chair, and come stand for marriage!
