Coalition For Marriage Equality In Minnesota Raised $2.5 Million In Only 8 Weeks

Written by 

In only 8 weeks, $2.5 million was collected by Minnesotans United for All Families, a coalition which rejects the constitutional amendment which prohibits marriage equality.

The total fundraising will thus have brought $8.2 million.

"The latest report brings the total fundraising for 2012 to $5.96 million and the campaign total to just over $8.2 million," according to the statement. "That money comes from 44,350 individual donors, with 92 percent from within the state."

Thus soon in Minnesota, television ads will be aired so that Minnesotans understand what such amendment means.

In comparison, Minnesota for Marriage, which opposed marriage equality, collected only $1.2 million in 1 year. What a damage!

A Star Tribune Minnesota Poll showed that 49% of voters approve of the amendment, with 47% opposed and 4% undecided.
