Gay marriage bill could soon pass in Minnesota

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- As early as Tuesday another state is set to legalize gay marriage.

Monday the Minnesota Senate approved a same-sex marriage bill.

Gay marriage supporters rallied around the state capitol in Minnesota. Supporters lined the steps with cut out hearts creating a path for lawmakers to enter the building before the vote.

"Even though I already have the right to marry the person I thought, I want to stand here for the right for everyone to marry the person they love," said Laura Askellin.

The bill will now head to the governor who is expected to sign it Tuesday.

Minnesota could become the 12th state to recognize gay marriage.
