Minneapolis Mayor Brings Gay Marriage Pitch to Wisconsin
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is bringing his gay marriage pitch to Wisconsin.
Rybak planned a Monday afternoon news conference with Madison Mayor Paul Soglin to unveil a new ad campaign inviting same-sex couples from Wisconsin to travel to Minneapolis to get legally married. Soglin plans to use the appearance to argue that Wisconsin needs to legalize gay marriage.
Wisconsin voters passed a constitutional amendment in 2006 barring gay marriage in the state.
Rybak also planned an appearance in Milwaukee on Monday morning.
He made the same pitch to same-sex couples in Chicago on Friday and he also plans to do something similar in Colorado.
