Conservatives are lining up in droves. Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is offering his support and urging supporters to visit a restaurant. One Wendy’s franchise owner expressed his support for Chick-fil-A at a North Carolina Wendy’s.
Chick-fil-A originally incurred a backlash when COO Dan Cathy affirmed in an interview that the company did not support gay marriage.
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said.
Some mayors around the country — including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino — have publicly supported the boycott of Chick-fil-A.
According to its Facebook event page, more than 630,000 people planned to go to Chick-fil-A today.
