Huckabee Lauds South Carolina's Same-Sex Marriage Ban

AUGUST 4, 2006 - Posted at 8:08 a.m. CDT

 

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Governor Huckabee says South Carolina

voters need to turn out in November to cast ballots for a gay

marriage ban amendment to that state's Constitution. He said today

in a visit to Columbia, South Carolina, that approval of the ban

would show that marriage still means something.

Huckabee is in South Carolina as chairman of the National

Governors Association, which meets in Charleston this weekend.

Today, he was helping raise money for Mike Campbell, who lost his

G-O-P runoff bid for lieutenant governor in June.

Huckabee, who is pondering a 2008 presidential bid, helped a

same-sex union constitutional ban pass in Arkansas in 2004 with 75

percent of voters approving. South Carolina voters will decide in

November on a similar amendment that says marriage is between one

man and one woman.

Huckabee told a crowd at Columbia that marriage needs

protection.
