Supporters of Marriage Equality in Minnesota Outraise Anti-Gay Opponents by $3.2 Million

The money momentum is on marriage equality in Minnesota, the AP reports:

MNMinnesotans United for All Families, which opposes the proposed gay marriage ban, raised $3.1 million from January through mid-June of 2012 alone — easily dwarfing the $1.4 million gay marriage foe Minnesota for Marriage has received since it began raising funds in mid-2011.

In all, Minnesotans United has raised $4.6 million to defeat the ban. The group has spent about $3 million of that total, while Minnesota for Marriage has spent about $900,000 so far.

Both groups submitted their fundraising totals Tuesday, the first in a series of election-year financial reporting deadlines for ballot measure campaigns.

Let's hope this translates into action at the ballot box.
