Daily Kos reports on Tim Kaine's appearance at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, yesterday, where he showed that the Democratic good guys are not afraid of raising LGBT issues in the belly of the beast:
“Now, I know in North Carolina, there’s been some pain over this issue. They snuck through in the legislature this HB 2, and they tried to introduce it kind of in the dead of night,” the Virginia senator said. “You all have stood up in a major way and you’ve said this is not who we are. This is not who North Carolina is. These are not our values. And that’s one of the reasons why North Carolina is so intensely focused on this race.” [...]
Kaine recalled a 2006 speech that Mike Pence delivered supporting a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, in which the then-congressman suggested that “societal collapse” would follow the “deterioration of marriage and family.”
Hillary is up by 2 points over Trump in the state, according to HuffPost Pollster. Obama won North Carolina in 2008 by a smidge, but it has otherwise been a solidly red state since who used which bathrooms was an issue for a different reason.
