Civil Rights Victory in Minnesota

Earlier this morning, Minnesota’s vote on the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage reached a joyous conclusion for supporters of marriage equality. Richard Carlbom, campaign manager of Minnesotans United for All Families, and several staff and volunteers were about to call it a night when they got the news: For the first time in American history, an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment was defeated. Upstart caught wind that there was live footage of the news; watch the historic moment here.
