This is a critical time for the four state campaigns fighting to protect marriage to increase their funding:
Today, Minnesota For Marriage released its latest finance report outlining that the committee has raised $1,195,652 for the period January 1, 2012 through September 25, 2012.
“Our latest report reveals that our 2012 donor contributions nearly doubled in only two months’ time since the July report,” said John Helmberger, Minnesota for Marriage Chairman. “These numbers reflect what we are hearing from the majority of Minnesotans who understand that marriage is the unique union of one man and one woman and that children need their mothers and fathers. Since around the time of the State Fair, these folks have been taking a more public role in protecting the definition of marriage in Minnesota.”
“Many choose to engage by volunteering—we are continuing to work with the tens of thousands of new supporters and volunteers who signed up at the State Fair. Others show their support by putting a VOTE YES yard sign in their lawn—we have distributed nearly 50,000 since the Fair with another 25,000 nearly entirely spoken for. Still others have given generously to support the efforts of the Minnesota for Marriage campaign as it works tirelessly to defend marriage.”
