Rachel Maddow: Maine’s upcoming vote on gay marriage

Rachel Maddow

In case you missed Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night, here’s her look at Maine‘s marriage battle and its similarities to California‘s Proposition 8, and interview with Jesse Connolly, campaign manager for Maine’s “No on 1” campaign.

Maine’s gay marriage law was supposed to go into effect on September 12, but was put on hold when opponents gathered enough signatures to place it on the November ballot, hoping that Maine voters exercise a “People’s Veto” of the law.

A “no” vote on the November ballot referendum question means a vote to support the law as passed, allowing gay marriage, while a yes vote opposes same-sex marriage and would support repealing the law.
