An opponent of Minnesota's marriage amendment was treated at a hospital for an injury and an amendment supporter charged with fifth-degree assault after a confrontation at the State Fair. Groups campaigning for and against the amendment had their booths just a few hundred feet apart.
Labor Day weekend also featured a visit to Minnesota from a young Iowa man who was raised by lesbian parents. Zach Wahls now campaigns against amendments like the one on Minnesota's ballot that would limit marriage to opposite sex couples. Wahls made appearances in the Duluth area and at the State Fair.
