Well, it’s official. Minnesotans United has released the first official television commercial of the campaign! You may remember that moving television commercial put together by Freedom to Marry in August. In that commercial, Duluth grandparents Yvonne and Fred Peterson talk about love and ask “Why shouldn’t other people be able to enjoy the happiness and the love that we’ve enjoyed through our lifetime?”
In this new commercial, John and Kim – Catholics and Republicans – talk about the discussions they’ve had with a “gay couple” that moved into their neighborhood and how “they were the most wonderful neighbors.”
The commercial concludes with:
It’s ok to take a second look.
And when you do, vote no.
I’m going to pause from sharing my commentary on this commercial just yet. Instead, I’d love to hear from you. What are your thoughts? Observations? Drop me a note or share in the comments.
