Republican Veteran Legislator Speaks Out in New MN United Video

Following the excellent news that 52 percent of Minnesotans agree with President Obama’s position on marriage equality, Minnesotans United for All Families, of which HRC is an integral coalition member, released its latest video. It features Rep. John Kriesel, an Iraq War veteran and Republican legislator who boldly voted against the anti-marriage amendment when it made its way through the state house.

The video excerpts his incredible floor speech about U.S. Army Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt, a gay veteran who died for his country in Afghanistan. Check it out:
