Supporters of gay marriage in Ohio have delivered petitions to the state's attorney general urging him to drop his appeal of a federal judge's order on same-sex marriage.
Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine has said marriage is between a man and a woman, and that he will continue defending Ohio's voter-approved gay marriage ban.
The group Why Marriage Matters Ohio delivered over 6,000 signatures to DeWine's office Thursday, demanding he stop the appeal.
Campaign manager Michael Premo calls the appeal a waste of taxpayer money and an injustice to Ohio families.
DeWine's office declined comment.
