MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Supporters of same-sex marriage in Minnesota say they’re undeterred by passage of a constitutional amendment in North Carolina that defines marriage solely as a union between a man and woman.

Unofficial returns in North Carolina show the amendment passing with about 61 percent of the vote. Minnesotans will take a similar vote on same-sex marriage in November.

Minnesotans United campaign manager Richard Carlbom says time ran out in North Carolina, but it’s not too late for Minnesota to defeat what he says is an “anti-family amendment.”

But, Minnesota for Marriage chairman John Helmberger says the vote in North Carolina is a “heavy blow” to same-sex marriage supporters who outspent opponents and were heavily organized in getting out the vote in that state.
