Human Rights Campaign forms PAC to fight anti-gay marriage amendment in Minnesota

The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT advocacy group, registered a political action committee (PAC) with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board on Monday with the purpose of defeating a ballot measure that would place a ban on same-sex marriage in the Minnesota Constitution. The PAC joins three others working to defeat the amendment. Currently, only one ballot campaign is working to pass the amendment.

HRC’s campaign, the Minnesota Family Freedom PAC, is the first national group to take an interest in defeating the amendment in Minnesota. Active on the opposite side is Minnesota for Marriage, a campaign comprised of the Minnesota Family Council and the Minnesota Catholic Conference, as well as the National Organization for Marriage. NOM has been active in the state since 2010 when it ran ads in support of Republicans.

NOM ran the ads in concert with the Minnesota Family Council as opposed to the Minnesota for Marriage ballot campaign, a move that sparked a campaign finance complaint earlier this year. That complaint is still pending.

Three other groups working to defeat the amendment registered after the Minnesota Legislature passed the amendment onto the ballot. Minnesotans United for All Families is being coordinated by OutFront Minnesota and Project 515, two groups that support relationship rights for LGBT families.

In addition, a group of Republicans have registered Republicans Against the Minnesota Marriage Amendment.

And another group has registered the It’s Personal to Me Campaign, which aims to put a personal face on the marriage equality battle.

On its website, the group explains its motivation:

In November 2012, Minnesotan’s will be asked whether to ban same-sex marriage by defining marriage between one man and one woman. When asked about this issue Minnesota Family Council President Tom Prichard said: “[O]ur goal is to not make it personal.” It’s Personal to Me, challenges this idea by putting a face on the people who will be affected by this harmful ballot measure that is anti-family and anti-marriage and will sew anger and division across the state.

Correction: Minnesotans United for All Families was originally named Minnesota United for Marriage in this story. The correction has been made.
