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.

Here's the complete article. Interesting to see that neither Focus on the Family nor the Family Research Institute returned calls to the reporter.

People for the American Way has produced a comprehensive report on James Dobson and his activities.

Please consider making a contribution today to help us continue our work of communicating with Wisconsin voters.
