MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The largest group working against a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota has raised $1.2 million, according to its campaign finance report.
Minnesotans United for All Families raised the money last year from more than 5,100 people. The information is in the group’s campaign finance report, which is due Tuesday but was provided early to some local media.
Some of the larger donations came from prominent Minnesotans, including Twins owner Jim Pohlad, who gave $10,000. The largest single contribution came from Marilyn Carlson Nelson of the Minneapolis-based hotel and travel business Carlson Companies. She gave $40,000.
A group pushing for the amendment, Minnesota for Marriage, won’t release its report until the filing deadline.
