Opponents of Maine gay marriage launch television ad campaign

Maine ant-gay marriageOpponents of same-sex marriage launched a television campaign Tuesday, two weeks behind supporters, in a contentious debate over whether to repeal Maine’s new marriage law.

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

Supporters kicked off a campaign earlier this month, followed by opponents, Stand for Marriage Maine, which began running ads Tuesday.

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.

Supporters of Maine’s gay marriage effort, Protect Maine Equality, launched their television campaign two weeks ago. Catch their ads here.
