Woodbury's Kieffer among 4 Republicans to back House gay marriage passage
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota is a Senate vote and a governor's signature away from becoming the 12th state to allow gay marriage.
Same-sex marriage supporters are optimistic because the House was regarded as the biggest hurdle. After the bill passed the House surprisingly easily 75-59, they were euphoric.
The Senate is due to take up the bill Monday and Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton says he will sign it.
