Minneapolis mayor brings gay marriage pitch to Wis

R.T. Rybak

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak wants same-sex couples in Wisconsin to get married in Minnesota. Rybak brought his pitch to Milwaukee and Madison at a pair of news conferences to unveil new a new ad campaign inviting same-sex couples to travel to Minneapolis and get legally married.

Ads also are being run in publications in Chicago and the mayor plans to do something similar in Colorado. Rybak says progressive public policy is good for business and he hopes that Wisconsin will soon join Minnesota in recognizing gay marriage. Wisconsin voters passed a constitutional amendment in 2006 barring gay marriage in the state and Republican policy makers have shown no interest in reversing that.
