Gov. Dayton “Symbolically” Vetoes Anti-Gay Constitutional Amendment

Governor Mark Dayton holds a press conference to announce a symbolic veto of the recently passed anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment. Dayton acknowledges his veto will not prevent the amendment from going on the 2012 general election ballot, but since it was sent to him in the form of a bill he has the option of signing or vetoing it.

He is joined by Lt. Governor Yvonne Prettner-Salon, Senator Scott Dibble (DFL-Minneapolis) and Representative Karen Clark (DFL-Minneapolis) who are leading the charge to defeat the amendment on the ballot.
