NC Voters Approve Constitutional Amendment Defining Marriage as Union Between Man, Woman

North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment Tuesday defining marriage solely as a union between a man and a woman, becoming the latest state to effectively slam the door shut on same-sex marriages.

With most of the precincts reporting Tuesday, unofficial returns showed the amendment passing with about 61 percent of the vote to 39 percent against. North Carolina is the 30th state to adopt such a ban on gay marriage.

North Carolina Street Brawling Congressman Facing Likely Defeat

Street brawling Congressman Bob Etheridge, D-NC, who assaulted a student asking if the Congressman "fully supported the Obama agenda," is refusing to concede defeat to Renee Ellmers, who leads by about 1500 votes.

Ellmers has declared victory, but the testy Congressman is hoping that provisional and absentee ballots from overseas may reverse his apparent loss. A recount is expected.

We expect it won't be long before his former constituents are asking Etheridge: "Who are you?"

The best way to ensure Hillary Clinton wins the White House is if the Republican Party nominates either of the two northeastern "Yankee" candidates with liberal records of supporting abortion on demand and homosexual activists' political agenda, since they will put even some Southern states at risk to the Democrats in the November 2008 general election.

Rasmussen today confirms that scenario in the Southern state of North Carolina, where fellow Southerner Gov. Mike Huckabee holds the largest lead over likely Democratic nominee Sen. Hillary Clinton, while Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Gov. Mitt Romney are the two weakest potential GOP nominees.

General election matchups

Huckabee 46% +7
Clinton 39

McCain 45 +5

Giuliani 40 +1

Clinton 42
Romney 40 -1

Three weeks ago, Rasmussen confirmed the same scenario in the Southern state of Arkansas, finding Huckabee leading Hillary in that state while the two northeastern "Yankee" candidates trailed Clinton by double digits.
