Minnesota for Marriage, the lead group pushing the marriage amendment, has released its first television ads of the campaign.
The ads both stress the importance of fighting to protect marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The group argues that without the Constitutional amendment, judges and legislators could change the law to legalize same-sex marriage.
"Everybody has the right to love who they choose, but nobody has the right to redefine marriage," said narrator Kalley Yanta, a former Twin Cities newscaster who has filmed dozens of “Marriage Minute” videos for the group.
It was not immediately known where the 30-second ads will run and for how long.
Marriage amendment opponents began running ads around the state more than a month ago.
A recent Star Tribune Minnesota Poll revealed the race is deadlocked.
