A New Hampshire-based advocacy group is speaking out against the ongoing threats by conservative lawmakers to repeal the state's marriage equality laws with a groundbreaking new ad.

Standing Up For New Hampshire Families, a bi-partisan grassroots group, released "It's Not Who We Are," a clip which features state residents who are registered Democrats and Republicans who "overwhelmingly reject" efforts to amend the law.

"We know the people of New Hampshire support individual rights," says Craig Stowell, a Former Marine who served in Iraq who describes himself as a conservative Republican, in the clip. "This effort to repeal or undermine the freedom to marry in New Hampshire does not represent our core New Hampshire values. We hope our ad reminds lawmakers that they need to listen to the people."

Meanwhile, it wasn't such a good day for a Democratic presidential nominee in the "Lesser Known Candidate Debate," held Dec. 19 at St. Anselm's College in Manchester. Candidate Randall Terry, who is reportedly running on a strong pro-life platform, was "glitterbombed" by performance artist and "perennial candidate for public office" Vermin Supreme.
