Group backing gay marriage in MN airs TV ad

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The political group pushing to legalize same-sex marriage in Minnesota is airing a new statewide television ad urging supporters to contact their legislators.

Minnesotans United said the ad would start airing on Wednesday. It features former state Rep. John Kriesel, a Republican supporter of gay marriage, and is similar to an ad also featuring Kriesel that the group ran in the days before the defeat of last fall's gay marriage ban.

The state House could vote soon vote on the bill to change Minnesota's legal definition of marriage to include all couples regardless of gender. The bill's next stop after that would be the state Senate, then Gov. Mark Dayton, who says he'd sign it.

Minnesotans United said its ad buy is six figures.
