Kris Mineau, a leader in the campaign for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, said today he was confident his side has enough votes to get the measure on the 2008 ballot.
"We're feeling very good about this," said Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, as he stood in front of his supporters.
"We're confident we have the votes, and we're calling on Senate president Terry Murray to keep her word and hold the vote,” Mineau said. “If they don' t hold the vote, you know we have the votes."
