Focus on the Family Moves into Wisconsin
A couple weeks ago, we mentioned that Focus on the Family held an event in Milwaukee. We wondered if this was a sign that they were getting more involved here.
Turns out they are, potentially in a big way.
Today's Capital Times reports that last week the national Focus on the Family created a referendum committee with the state Elections Board:

The nation's most powerful voice against same-sex marriage is entering the battleground in Wisconsin, where voters in November will decide the fate of a proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage.
Focus on the Family, the conservative Colorado Springs-based group led by James Dobson, filed papers with the state Elections Board last week to create a referendum committee. The group has spent more than $1 million passing anti-gay marriage legislation in other states and the stakes here are high: Wisconsin has been pegged by analysts as perhaps the first state that stands a chance of defeating a same-sex marriage ban.
People for the American Way has produced a comprehensive report on James Dobson and his activities.
