Lori Sturdevant: The marriage amendment vote

Larry Jacobs weighs in on significance of marriage amendment.

When I opined to Larry Jacobs, the political scientist who heads the Humphrey School's Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, that this amendment could be the most divisive constitutional question ever called in this state, he didn't disagree. "This engages people personally," Jacobs said. "This is a debate that cuts across family lines, generational lines, party lines. People are pushing hard for their points of view, and many of them are running into resistance from their own team."
