Sen. Al Franken Cheers MN Marriage

“I’ve been married to Franni for 37 years and it’s the best thing that
ever happened to me. As a long-time supporter of marriage equality, I
believe that every loving couple-in Minnesota and across the
country-should have the same opportunity. And now, thanks to courageous-and not to mention,
bipartisan-votes by the Minnesota State Legislature and support from
Minnesotans statewide, we are the latest state to legalize same-sex
marriage. Today I’m proud that Gov. Mark Dayton signed legislation
bringing marriage equality to Minnesota. Our country is beginning to
understand that it’s not about what a family looks like: it’s about
their love and commitment to one another.” – Sen. Al Franken, in a statement posted to his official Senate page.
