Kalley King Yanta stars in the first of a series of videos released by supporters of a proposed amendment that would ban gay marriage in the Minnesota Constitution.

Voters will decide on the amendment in November during the General Election.

In the first Minnesota Marriage Minute video released on Wednesday by the group Minnesota for Marriage, Yanta, an anti-choice advocate and a former news anchor for the Twin Cities ABC affiliate KSTP-TV, informs watchers of the proposed amendment.

“Marriage in Minnesota has always been defined as the union of one man and one woman,” Yanta says in the 90-second video. “That definition has existed since before Minnesota was even a state.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

John Helmberger, chairman of Minnesota for Marriage, thanked Yanta for appearing in the series.

“We especially want to thank Kalley Yanta, a veteran former news anchor and devoted mother for volunteering her time to make these important videos,” he said in a statement. “We are grateful for Kalley's faithful commitment to preserving marriage in Minnesota and for her experience and poise in presenting the various topics. We are confident that she will be well received by Minnesotans across the state.”

The group is expected to release a new video each week.
