Minnesota state senator Scott Dibble (DFL) has promised that the Democratic Farmer Labor Party will advance marriage equality legislation, but not for a month or two. Minnesota Democrats were very successful in the 2012 election, in part because Republican lawmakers allowed a government shut down when they refused to adequately fix the budget deficit. One of the distractions they pursued instead was a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, which failed to pass in November.
