The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has launched ads urging voters not to re-elect Senators Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Kay Hagan of North Carolina.

In Kay Hagan's Judge, NOM claims Hagan “hand-picked and confirmed” the federal judge who struck down North Carolina's ban on gay marriage. Such confirmations, however, are voted on by the full Senate.

The group endorses North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis, who continues to defend the state's ban in court using taxpayer dollars against impossible odds.

“Kay Hagan and her judge betrayed us,” a female narrator says. “Send them a message; vote Thom Tillis for U.S. Senate.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor is one of only a handful of Democratic senators who have yet to endorse marriage equality.

In I Gotta Run, NOM questions the strength of Pryor's opposition and urges viewers to cast their votes for U.S. Representative Tom Cotton, a vocal opponent of marriage equality.

NOM President Brian Brown said in as statement that Pryor's commitment “has been seriously undermined by his refusal to answer questions about his current position in light of a court decision finding the Arkansas marriage amendment unconstitutional.”

“Of even greater concern are comments by a prominent lesbian leader who says Pryor has told her he does not oppose gay marriage, but just can't talk about the issue right now. This powerful new ad exposes Pryor for this duplicity.”

“Tom Cotton will fight for marriage while Mark Pryor cannot be trusted,” Brown added. “We urge voters who believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman to cast their votes for Tom Cotton.”
