The lead group in Minnesota backing the marriage amendment has released its first television advertisements of the campaign Tuesday.
Advertisements from Minnesota for Marriage both stress the importance of fighting to preserve marriage as only the union of a man and a woman, and everybody has the right to love who they choose, reported by the Star Tribune.
Not only large corporations spoke against the upcoming marriage amendment, but also small businesses in Minneapolis are following suit.
A local café and bakery, Cupcake, near the University of Minnesota have "Vote No" bumper stickers on all of their vehicles and use Facebook to spread their message against the amendment, reported by the Minnesota Daily. FirstTech, an Apple computer store in Uptown, supports campaigns by financially sponsoring events. Also, the Big Gay Race, a five-kilometer race that raised funds for Minnesotans United, held last weekend.
"No one wants to be told it's illegal to marry the person you love," said Richard Carlbom, campaign manager for Minnesotans United for All Families.
