Minnesota Marriage Equality Supporters to Rally at Capitol

Supporters of marriage equality in Minnesota are making a Valentine's Day push, the AP reports:

MNOrganizers of what they're calling the "Freedom to Marry" rally say they expect 1,500 to 2,000 supporters in the Capitol rotunda the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 14,.

What once seemed like a long shot in Minnesota now looks more possible. Gov. Dayton restated his support for same-sex marriage rights in his State of the State speech, and DFL legislative leaders have been increasingly open to the prospect of taking up the issue later in the current session.
