MINNEAPOLIS — The campaign to defeat the constitutional gay marriage ban on November’s ballot is airing its first TV commercial featuring a suburban, Catholic married couple talking about their friendship with a lesbian couple who live next door.

John and Kim Canny of Savage star in the ad that starts airing Tuesday. It identifies them as Catholic Republicans married 13 years, and the couple says they never thought much about same-sex marriage until a gay couple moved in next door with an adopted son.

The Cannys say they realized both couples wanted the same things for their families and that’s why they’ll vote no on the amendment. Minnesotans United for All Families is spending $255,000 to air the ad on six Twin Cities TV stations for a week.
