Minnesota Senate debates, passes discriminatory marriage amendment
With it next going to a House vote, for all intents and purposes it’s onto the ballot on 2012. Like North Carolina, the governor in Minnesota has no veto power. (Adam Bink, Prop 8 Trial Tracker):
The measure passed 38-27, after lengthy debate over several hours. I noticed the number of speakers against the measure took up most of the time, while those voting for discrimination were far less to be found. There most certainly were not 38 speakers, or anywhere close to it, in favor of the measure.
Stay tuned on this as we move towards a ballot campaign. This is going to be a battleground.
