Return to Florida Definition of Marriage, Amendment 2 (2008)

Florida Red and Blue is a Florida political group organized to defeat the Florida Definition of Marriage, Amendment 2 (2008).

Amendment 2 was one of three ballot measures that appeared on November ballots around the country to ban same-sex marriage. Of these, the highest profile battle surrounded California Proposition 8. According to Stephen Gaskill, a spokesperson for Florida Red and Blue, the focus on the California measure complicated fundraising efforts for those fighting Florida Amendment 2.

Gaskill said, "Certainly if the California effort was not underway, it would be easier for Florida to raise money — that’s just a reality."[1]

Amendment 2 was approved in a vote of 62$ to 48%.
