Gov. Mark Dayton proudly bought a “Vote No” T-shirt during the Democratic National Convention Tuesday, demonstrating his opposition to the anti-gay marriage amendment on the Minnesota ballot in November.
Dayton also expressed his support for the historic plank in the Democratic platform, which for the first time endorses same-sex marriage.
Dayton called it a “very powerful statement…I’m proud it’s in this platform and it says a lot about movement forward in this Democratic party,” he said.
Much of the state delegation wore the same “Vote No” T-shirt on the convention floor. The platform was adopted by acclamation.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
