  • Amendment opponents circulated an e-mail from North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper that called the amendment "unclear, unwise and unnecessary."
  • A group of start-up company executives made their opposition to the amendment known.
  • U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan recorded a video detailing her opposition to the marriage amendment.

  • Finally, Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling released results today showing the amendment losing ground among North Carolinians. Click here for results.
