"While the President does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that the President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples. That's what the Minnesota ballot initiative would do - it would single out and discriminate against committed gay and lesbian couples - and that's why the President does not support it."

-- Kristen Sosanie, spokeswoman for Obama's Minnesota campaign, in a statement released yesterday. The only difference between this statement and the one put out last month about the upcoming North Carolina amendment vote is the name of the state; otherwise it's exactly the same.
