The vote on gay marriage is today in Minnesota. Lawmakers are under huge pressure from gay marriage activists. This state representative is standing strong:
"Rep. Denny McNamara, R-Hastings, whose district saw 53 percent of voters reject the constitutional amendment, hasn't changed his mind: He'll vote "no" on Thursday.
"Marriage is marriage," McNamara, who supports civil unions for same-sex couples, said Tuesday. "I've thought about it over and over, and ultimately I'm confident with my decision." (Pioneer Press)
