LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — A new political action committee that opposes Maine's same-sex marriage referendum on November's ballot is formally launching its campaign.
Michael Heath and Paul Madore, co-chairmen of the No Special Rights PAC, and their supporters are holding a press conference Saturday on the steps of Lewiston City Hall.
Heath and Madore have held leadership roles going back to the early 1990s opposing gay rights and gay marriage initiatives in Maine.
They say they've hired a treasurer for the PAC and begun raising money, and vow that they'll be outspoken in their opposition to the proposal to legalize gay marriage in Maine.
