Scottsdale will join the ongoing gay rights battle as all across the nation where states like Washington and Maine have passed same sex marriage laws. Already the state of Arizona has passed a 56-44 ban on gay marriage, but a new political ballot may return the issue to the voting booth in just six short years.
Buoyed by four victories nationwide, a Scottsdale man has taken the first steps to asking Arizonans to overturn their ban on gay marriage.
Tanner Pritts has formed Arizona Advocates for Marriage Equality. But he also has filed the necessary paperwork with the Secretary of State's Office to allow him to start raising money for a 2014 campaign.
Pritts conceded to Capitol Media Services he is a political novice at ballot measures. In fact, the Scottsdale resident said he is just 22.
