MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Senate Majority Leader John Campbell says he's been threatened because of his plan to introduce a bill in January to legalize same-sex marriage.

The Windsor County Democrat says he received a call at the Statehouse Wednesday by a woman who threatened to blow up his house.

Campbell says the woman didn't give her name.

Campbell says the call is disturbing. He says you can never tell if the call is from someone giving an emotional reaction or if it's serious.

Vermont was the first state in the country to offer same-sex couples civil unions. Now some believe the state should offer same sex marriage.

Campbell says police are investigating the threat.
