Minnesotans United for all Families, the coalition working to defeat a constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marrying, announced on Tuesday that they had raised $4.6 million so far in the campaign, $3.1 million of that has come since January.
The campaign noted that the vast majority of its donations were from Minnesotans, with 91 percent coming from in-state since January.
“What this report shows is that the conversation we are having across this state is working, and that more and more, Minnesotans are coming to the conclusion that limiting the freedom to marry for same-sex couples is not how we do things in Minnesota,” campaign manager Richard Carlbom said in a statement. “Minnesotans know that marriage is about love, commitment and responsibility, and no one would want to be told it’s illegal to marry the person you love.”
