DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Dozens of men crowded the intersection at Lake Avenue and Superior Street in Duluth Monday to show their support against the proposed Minnesota marriage amendment.

Organizers say current polling shows voters are almost evenly split on the matter, with the majority of women more likely to vote no.

That's while men are more likely to vote yes.

The rally coincided with the release of two new campaign commercials from "Minnesota for Marriage," the group aiming to get the constitutional marriage amendment, defining marriage as solely between one man and one woman, passed.

Tuesday, St. Louis County could become the first county in Minnesota to publicly oppose the marriage amendment, if the resolution is passed by commissioners.
