Texas governor Rick Perry has sent out 10,000 e-mails asking Texas voters for their support of a state constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

Texas governor Rick Perry has reached out to 10,000 Texans by e-mail asking for their support of a state constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. In turn, an anti-amendment group sent out 10,000 mailers to Democrats accusing Perry and fellow Republicans of attacking gay and lesbian families. Perry's e-mail, sent out on Tuesday, read, "That marriage is the union between a man and a woman is a truth known to each one of us already, and any attempt to allow same-sex marriages is a detriment to the family unit and hurts our state and nation." The Texas Marriage Alliance relayed the e-mail through its Web site, which was started this year in support of Proposition 2, the measure that would amend the state constitution. The anti-amendment group, No Nonsense in 2006, paid for a mailing to past Travis County Democratic Party donors questioning the "unnecessary and divisive amendment." The mailer said that Perry and "the Republican legislature are running a shell game with an unnecessary, dangerous attack on our constitution and Texas families." Proposition 2 is among nine measures on the November 8 ballot. (AP)
