Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President of the United States on Sunday with a YouTube video called “Getting Started,” which features a same-sex couple preparing to get married. Now, it appears that Clinton will have to add another event to her campaign trail schedule: attending the couple’s wedding.

The couple has gotten a lot of attention thanks to the video, which has been viewed more than 2.5 million times. So Milrad and Johnson decided to show Clinton their gratitude by inviting her to the wedding.

The video, which also features a lesbian couple, suggests that same-sex marriage will be an important issue in Clinton’s campaign. LPAC, “the country’s first and only lesbian political action committee,” has already announced it will support the Clinton campaign.

Clinton hasn’t officially accepted the invitation yet. But luckily for Bill, the couple says they’re giving her a plus one.
