Audio: Anti-gay conservative still pretending 2012 elections never happened

by Jeremy Hooper

[FULL AUDIO: Liberty Counsel]

First the minor correction: It's thirteen states *PLUS* D.C. With D.C., we have fourteen. And minimize that all you want, but it's an astounding number of states—a number we achieved in less than a decade!

But as for the bigger lie: Um, Daniel, perhaps you missed the historic elections of 2012, where we won four state contests and re-elected a pro-equality President. That night represented a changing tide, which lines up with all credible polling. Yes, we won lots of contests in the past, especially in the early days when we had very little game and were largely trying to stave off a well-financed onslaught. But it's now 2013, and we are now winning. You can ignore the inconvenient truth, if you insist, but it's not going to change anything.
