Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- Most Fortune 500 companies in Minnesota have records of supporting gay rights. But they are staying mum on the gay marriage amendment.

The Associated Press contacted the 13 such companies that offer domestic partner benefits. Only one is taking a stand on the ban, on the ballot next year. Leaders at St. Jude Medical believe that amendment is not in the best interest of jobs and economic growth.

All other firms, including Target and General Mills, aren't weighing in or commenting.
