Despite being urged by constituents, including a local mayor, to vote against gay marriage, Minnesota state Senator Vicki Jensen is sticking to her guns. The Owatonna Prople’s Press reports:
On Saturday morning, Owatonna Mayor Tom Kuntz asked Sen. Vicki Jensen if he and others could convince her to vote no on a gay marriage bill to be heard on Monday in the state Senate. Jensen told Kuntz that she wouldn’t change her mind and that she will vote for a bill that, if approved by the Senate and signed by DFL Gov. Mark Dayton, will make Minnesota the 12th state in the U.S. to allow gay marriage.
The Senate votes Monday on the marriage equality bill – if successful, it will go to Governor Dayton for his signature.
