Prop 8 campaigns step up over weekend
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Opposing sides in the battle over same-sex marriage stepped up their campaigns over the weekend.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom toured the city's Castro District Saturday to get the vote out against proposition eight which would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriages.
Newsom spearheaded the battle in California four years ago when he allowed gay couples to wed in his city.
Proposition 8 supporters held prayer services around the state Saturday including one at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.
Thousands held a prayer vigil and fasted in hopes of the measure's passage.
Smaller services were held at churches including one at the Christian Community Church in San Jose.
