ST. PAUL, MN - Today, Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith made the following statement after the Supreme Court released its decision to uphold marriage equality across the country:
"Our nation was founded on the principle that all people deserve equal protection under the law," said Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith. "Today, the Court upheld that basic promise in all 50 states, and confirmed what Minnesotans have known for years - that love is love. While this is a major victory, there is more work to be done. We need to continue fighting until all Americans have equal rights and protections guaranteed by our Constitution."
