North Carolina’s top law enforcement official said Wednesday he’ll vote against the marriage amendment on next month’s ballot, pointing out potential legal problems with its language and giving opponents of the referendum another ally.

In an email to his supporters, Attorney General Roy Cooper called the proposal to amend the state constitution “unclear, unwise and unnecessary.” Cooper said the proposal also lacked careful deliberation.
