During the opening celebration of the Republican National Convention on Sunday in Cleveland, one advocacy group will try to take their message to new heights, literally.
Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio announced Thursday his group will be welcoming the delegates with a special pro-family display. A plane towing a banner that reads "Protect Real Marriage" will fly above downtown Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where delegates will attend a welcome ceremony from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT Sunday.
Public Advocate and Delgaudio explained their "air campaign" in a special press release Thursday:
The airborne PROTECT REAL MARRIAGE message is a call to action to Republican Delegates attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to pass the pro-marriage plank in the just-passed Republican platform committee report that is being passed out at the first session on Monday, July 18.
Public Advocate president Delgaudio attended two days of the Platform committee this week to urge the passage of the pro-marriage plank. Delgaudio is also an alternate National Delegate from Virginia's 10th Congressional District.
"Real marriage and family values have never been more threatened in America than right now," Delgaudio said. "But thanks in large part to the on-the-ground efforts of Public Advocate during the convention preliminaries, the Platform Committee has kept a commitment to real marriage (one man + one woman) in the GOP Party platform.
"The Platform Committee also adopted Public Advocate's stance on opposing 'transgender bathrooms,'" he said. "Now it will be up to the Convention Delegates to ratify this platform."
In addition to the aerial banner, Public Advocate will post online banner ads on social media, internet ads, email messages to supporters, overpass banners and roadside signs put up by local volunteers. The online ads will be geared to target all Republican convention attendees.
