On Tuesday, Newt Gingrich threw his support behind Amendment One, a measure that would amend the North Carolina state constitution to legally define a marriage between one and one woman as the only valid domestic union recognized by the state.

In a video statement, Gingrich called a heterosexual marriage the "heart of our civilization."  The presidential candidate urged North Carolinians to take to the polls and declare their support for the amendment.

"This is your chance to turn out and vote and vote for preserving America, and to vote for preserving a very basic institution," said Gingrich. "There's an effort by radicals at every level to change who we are, to change what America is and to change for our children into a future that I think will be much worse."
