Wednesday, May 15, 2013 – Saint Paul, MN – Minnesotans United today announced the formation of the MN United PAC, a political action committee that will work to support and re-elect legislators who voted in favor of extending the freedom to marry to same-sex couples in 2013.
“Minnesotans United recognizes that casting a yes vote in favor of allowing same-sex couples to marry was a decision that many legislators struggled with,” said Richard Carlbom, Campaign Manager. “But their leadership and choice to stand on the side of families and freedom in Minnesota should be commended. Minnesotans statewide called on the Legislature to take action this year, and a majority of legislators answered that call and made our state the twelfth to ensure that same-sex couples and their families are finally treated equally under the law.
MN United PAC will work tirelessly to ensure that the leaders in the Legislature – Republican and Democrat – who voted yes for marriage this year have the grassroots and financial support they need to be re-elected. These legislators cast an important historic vote, and now it’s our turn to show our appreciation and tell them that we’ve got their back.”
