VIDEO: NH Gay Marriage Foe Focusing on Jobs
A new ad campaign urges lawmakers to reject gay marriage repeal. Kevin Smith says he is focused on jobs.
Kevin Smith was in the trenches fighting the state law that allows same-sex couples to marry in New Hampshire. But as a Republican candidate for governor, the former Cornerstone Action director tells Patch he is focused on jobs.
During an interview in front of the New Hampshire Statehouse, Smith mentioned the word "jobs" more than a dozen times. He addressed gay marriage only when asked about it, and a bill (House Bill 437) that would repeal the statute.
A new group, "Standing Up for NH Families," launched an ad campaign this week to urge lawmakers to reject the gay marriage repeal bill.
Smith tells Patch, "It's not going to be a theme of my campaign and it's not going to be a focus of my campaign."
