APIA: Pawlenty Must Support MN Marriage Amendment


From American Principles in Action's press release:

Today, American Principles in Action urged former Minnesota Governor and presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty to publicly support the state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which is up for a vote in the Minnesota House of Representatives tomorrow.

“Courts in states across the country are overturning laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman, but this amendment will ensure Minnesotans have a chance to protect marriage from activist judges,” said Frank Cannon, president of American Principles in Action.

“Gov. Pawlenty’s credibility as a social conservative is at stake as he continues to vie for the Republican nomination for president,” said Cannon. “Republican voters across the country will take note of whether or not he is a leader for marriage in his home state.”

Gov. Pawlenty has previously stated that traditional values such as marriage between a man and a woman are “universal” and are “embedded in our culture.”
