Urgent: No on 8 needs $3 million in 3 days

The No on 8 campaign needs to raise $3 million in the next three days, or the campaign will likely lose, Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California and a member of No on 8’s executive committee, wrote in an e-mail blast today (Wednesday, October 29).

Proposition 8 on the November ballot would eliminate same-sex marriage in the state.

Kors wrote that on Tuesday, the Yes on 8 campaign “reported donations of $2.2 million, dwarfing the $255,650 [No on 8] reported, and called on their donors to contribute another $3 million.”

Yes on 8 is using the money to buy “every available ad space on TV in California to blast even more of their hateful lies and prevent our messages from being seen,” wrote Kors, who added that he’s increasing his own donation to No on 8 to $50,000, the most he has ever given to anything.

“I’m asking you to increase your gift too – at whatever amount you can, so that we can match the other side on the air,” Kors wrote.
