The Wright County GOP Central Committee unanimously voted to censure Sen. Joni Ernst over her act on the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act.
The group wrote that her vote is in opposition to Wright County’s platform:
“Support a constitutional amendment defining and supporting the honored institution of marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman.”
It also violates the Fourth District GOP platform, they wrote:
“We support the repeal of any laws allowing any marriage that is not between one natural man and one natural woman.”
And they cited the state GOP platform.
“We believe that traditional two-parent (one male (XY) and one female (XX)), marriage-based families are the foundation to a stable, enduring, and healthy civilization. We encourage the repeal of any laws allowing any marriage that is not between one natural man and one natural woman.”
“Please consider these adopted planks as well as our entire adopted platform when making your voting decisions,” said the email sent to Ernst.
