Both Sides Ready to Spend in New Hampshire's Gay Marriage Repeal Fight
Both sides in the fight over gay marriage are pouring in money to woo legislators or penalize those who vote the other way. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently gave $50,000 to Standing Up for New Hampshire Families, a Concord group that backs gay marriage.
And the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) plans to tap a nationwide donor base to spend $250,000 on television commercials and to donate to candidates who oppose gay marriage.
The Legislature plans to vote this year on repealing the state's same-sex marriage law, approved in 2009. NOM President Brian Brown said New Hampshire is in the spotlight.
