FILE - In this July 31, 2013 file photo, Minnesota Mayor R.T. Rybak applauds after a performance by the Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus at the Minneapolis City Hall. Rybak is hitting the road to promote his state's new gay marriage law. He is traveling to Chicago on Thursday, Sept. 5 to launch a "Marry in Minneapolis" campaign in the hopes that Illinois gay and lesbian couples will do just that. Illinois has not passed a gay marriage law, an issue is scheduled to come before state lawmakers again this fall. (AP Photo/Stacy Bengs, File)
