   INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Mary Cheney is coming to Indianapolis to help raise money to fight a proposed amendment banning gay marriage.
 
   The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney plans to headline a fundraiser for Freedom Indiana on Dec. 11. Tickets range from $30 to $5,000. Cheney is a married lesbian and supports same-sex marriage.
 
   Cheney has recently been fighting publicly with her sister, a conservative Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming. Senate candidate Liz Cheney recently said she opposes gay marriage.
 
   Indiana lawmakers are considering adding the state's ban on gay marriage to the constitution. Supporters of the strengthened ban say it is needed to block a judge from potentially overturning state law.
 
   If successful during the upcoming session, the measure would head to Indiana voters for approval.
