Charlotte, N.C. —
As voters in North Carolina prepare to go to the polls Tuesday and vote on an amendment that would ban gay marriage, former President Bill Clinton has recorded a robo call asking them to say no.
"I'm calling to urge you to vote against Amendment 1 on Tuesday May 8," he says in the call, according to The Hill "If it passes, it won't change North Carolina's law on marriage. What it will change is North Carolina's ability to keep good businesses, attract new jobs, and attract and keep talented entrepreneurs."
North Carolina law already prohibits gay marriage. Big business like Charlotte-based Bank of America have said that the amendment might scare away top talent.
"If it passes, your ability to keep those businesses, get those jobs, and get those talented entrepreneurs will be weakened. And losing even one job to Amendment 1 is too big of a risk. Its passage will also take away health insurance from children and could even take away domestic violence protections from women," Clinton said in his call.
Public Policy Polling said that the amendment is currently leading in the polls 55 to 41 percent.
