Minnesota same-sex marriage fight re-energized - on both sides

Minneapolis (CNN) – Minneapolis is a conflicted city. It's home to one of the largest gay pride festivals in the Midwest and was once dubbed the "gayest city in America" by The Advocate magazine. The metropolitan area is also home to the conservative power base of Rep. Michele Bachmann.

And in six months, voters there and across the state will decide whether to amend the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

Bachmann's home no longer in her Congressional district

(CNN) - A Minnesota judicial panel revealed redrawn congressional districts Tuesday that placed Rep. Michele Bachmann's home outside the district she represents.

Bachmann announced this month she was running for re-election in the sixth district, which includes parts of the Minneapolis-St. Paul suburbs. She said Tuesday she would still run in the sixth district, despite a new map drawn by the state's Supreme Court Special Redistricting panel that put her town, Stillwater, in the fourth district.

Santorum: GOP race now in 'no man's land'

St. Charles, Missouri (CNN) - As he was handily winning three Republican contests and stalling frontrunner Mitt Romney's clear path to the Republican presidential nomination, Rick Santorum proclaimed to CNN that the 2012 GOP race was now "in a little bit of no man's land."

The former Pennsylvania senator's campaign got a massive dose of momentum after stunning frontrunner Mitt Romney with a clean sweep on Tuesday night, beating him by double digits in Minnesota, a state Romney won in 2008, stunning him in Colorado, another state in Romney's column in 2008, and trouncing him in Missouri, one of the country's biggest battleground states.
