Political tidal wave hits Minnesota.

Minnesota state House and Senate move dramatically in pro-life, pro-marriage direction.

MINNEAPOLIS - "The tidal wave came to Minnesota yesterday with both the state House and Senate shifting control to conservatives. This is certainly the biggest change I've witnessed in over 20 years working at the state legislature. The Minnesota legislature is now decidedly more pro-life and pro-marriage."

"We look forward to working with the new legislature on pro-life, pro-marriage legislation in the future," said Prichard.

“MFC would like to thank the tens of thousands of social conservatives who headed our calls, emails and mailings to vote their pro-life, pro-marriage values," said Chuck Darrell, Director of Communications. "MFC/MFI made approximately 500,000 calls across Minnesota encouraging voters to vote their biblical values and protect marriage. MFC also distributed 250,000 Voters’ Guides, almost half of which were distributed to 1,200 churches.

“This dramatic change in both houses stops efforts to legalize gay marriage dead in it's tracks," said Darrell. "Recently, backers of gay marriage have been boasting that Minnesota is on the 'verge' of legalizing gay marriage. Apparently not, as the people have responded by electing pro-life, pro-marriage majorities in both the house and the senate,” said Darrell.

Minnesota Family Council is the state’s largest non-partisan pro-family organization. Its mission is to strengthen the families of Minnesota by advancing biblical principles in the public arena.
