Cuomo takes gay-marriage fight to NY airwaves
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has taken his fight for marriage equality in New York to the airwaves, urging local residents who support same-sex marriage to contact their local lawmakers.
"On the issue of marriage equality, New York has fallen behind," Cuomo says in his current television commercial.
The governor wants legislators to pass a gay marriage bill before they go on summer break next month, and is hoping that his new advertisement will convince local supporters to make their case to their local politicians.
Cuomo compares the fight for marriage equality to the Civil Rights movement, calling same-sex weddings a matter of fairness and equality. to watch Cuomo's video.
