California volunteers helping Maine affirm gay marriage law

California volunteers helping Maine affirm gay marriage law

Californians, in particular, are watching Maine’s same sex marriage vote closely.

And some, like Demi Espinoza, Daniel Shad and Gabe Gonzalez, care so passionately about the issue that they’re giving up their vacation time to volunteer in Maine to preserve gay marriage there.

Each is an organizer with Equality California and they’re helping get college students to vote in central Maine.

The feeling is, if they can get more younger people to the polls here, they can blunt the power and influence of the Catholic Church in this part of the state which has a heavy French Catholic influence.
