The Reitan family have spoken out against efforts to enshrine a gay marriage ban in the Minnesota constitution.
Defending son Jake’s right to one day be able to marry a same-sex partner, the Reitan family appears in a video from the Democratic Farmer Labor Party (DFL) project “A Family is About Love” urging viewers to vote against the constitutional amendment at the 2012 ballot.
A recent poll by Public Policy Polling found Minnesotans are nearly evenly divided on the amendment with 46% of people favoring the move while 47% opposed the amendment and 7% remain undecided. Similarly, 45% of people said that gay marriage should be illegal while 46% said it should be legal, and 9% remain undecided. Read more on that here.
