Gay marriage supporters plan Valentine's Day rally at the Capitol

Gay marriage supporters plan to show their might at the Minnesota Capitol on Valentine's Day.

They will hold a "Freedom to Marry Day Rally " on February 14, kicking off what is expected to be a massive effort to rescind the current law banning same-sex marriage and replace it with a law blessing same-sex unions.

The Capitol effort comes after a multi-million dollar campaign last year that successfully turned back a ballot measure that would have constitutionally banned gay marriage in Minnesota. 

Opponents say Minnesota may be the first state in the nation to vote against a same-sex marriage ban but that doesn't mean the state will accept gay marriage.
