Sen. Amy Klobuchar is throwing her name into the campaign to defeat the Minnesota marriage amendment this November.
Klobuchar, a Democrat, has pledged to help raise $10,000 for Minnesotans United for All Families.
"We are a country that was founded on freedom and liberty for all. And with all of the major challenges facing our state, our focus now should be on bringing people together, not dividing them," Klobuchar said. "That's why I am standing with Minnesotans United for All Families, the grassroots campaign that will defeat this hurtful constitutional amendment. Minnesotans United for All Families shares my mission – defending the freedoms of all Minnesotans."
Klobuchar highlighted the fact that 30 states have passed marriage amendments already, defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
"We've got a real chance to make history – a challenge I know that Minnesotans never back away from," Klobuchar said.
