MADISON, WI (AP) -

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is bringing his gay marriage pitch to Wisconsin.

Rybak planned a Monday news conference with Madison Mayor Paul Soglin to unveil a new ad campaign inviting same-sex couples from Wisconsin to travel to Minneapolis to get legally married. Soglin plans to use the appearance to argue that Wisconsin needs to legalize gay marriage.

Wisconsin voters passed a constitutional amendment in 2006 barring gay marriage in the state.

Rybak has made the same pitch to same-sex couples in Chicago on Friday and he also plans to do something similar in Colorado.
