Supporters of marriage equality ratchet up the pressure on Minnesota lawmakers to legalize same-sex marriage with a lunch time rally at the State Capitol building. Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton told the crowd that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right guaranteed under the equal protection clause.
Before and after the rally, marriage equality supporters visited their lawmakers and urged them to vote yes on same-sex marriage.
