Opponents of Maine's new gay marriage law have hired the same PR firm that ran California's Proposition 8 last year to run their ballot campaign, AP reports.
Maine Freedom to Marry, which will fight the initiative, has hired Jesse Connolly to run their effort. Connolly, who will be taking a leave of absense as House Speaker Hannah Pingree's chief of staff, ran the 2005 campaign to retain Maine's gay rights law.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
