(7:34 PM) – According to FOX News: It appears that the gay marriage amendment passed 58% to 42% in Virginia. It is unclear if this projection is a combo of the exit polling data and actual vote totals. But it does make me think this helps George Allen.
UPDATE from GPW: On Fox, they’re reporting that one-third of those who voted for this pernicious proposal picked Webb for Senate.
(8:30 PM) – FOX News is now projecting another defeat for gay marriage in Tennessee by a margin of 85-15 (not actual results yet though).
(10:28 PM) – AP reports Wisconsin voters have defeated gay marriage in an amendment today.
Wisconsin voters favored an amendment that would add two sentences to the state constitution to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman.
The amendment prevents the state from recognizing similar relationships among unmarried individuals, such as civil unions.
Gay rights groups such as Human Rights Campaign considered Wisconsin their best chance to defeat a gay marriage ban, and conservative Christian groups such as Focus on the Family tried to rally voters to pass the measure.
And also in South Carolina, voters have endorsed a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in the state.
GPW @ 10:35 EST; 7:35 PSTI thought we had a chance of defeating the referendum in Wisconsin. Its loss there is terribly disappointing. I wonder how much the New Jersey decision influenced voters in the Badger State.
GP (10:37 PM): GayPatriot reader Gene has this interesting observation…..
This Democrat “wave”…interesting again how they don’t include blacks and gays. ALL the gay marriage initiatives lost. African Americans at the tops of tickets lost in TN PA and MD. Gays and blacks continue to get scraps from the Dems.
