Tory candidate Sarah Wollaston brands equal marriage opponents 'bigots'
The Coalition for Marriage, which is supported by 23 of Ms Wollaston's Conservative parliamentary colleagues, has been dropping leaflets telling voters in Totnes that Ms Wollaston voted for same-sex marriage.
The leaflets tell constituents to "use your vote for true marriage" at the upcoming general election on 7 May.
Ms Wollaston this morning tweeted an image of the leaflet with a message saying: "Coalition for marriage' are stuffing these through letter boxes in my area. Thanks bigots, I'm proud of that vote!"
'Coalition for marriage' are stuffing these through letter boxes in my area. Thanks bigots, I'm proud of that vote!
Tory minister Anna Soubry has also been targeted by the same campaign in her own constituency. She tweeted an image with the message that she was "proud" to have voted for the legislation.
Proud to have voted for equal marriage. Doing the right thing matters more than winning & selling out
The Coalition for Marriage has also been endorsing Tory candidates who voted against the legislation, such as Jacob Rees-Mogg in North Somerset.
