PORTLAND — Democratic Senate candidate Cynthia Dill is rallying gay marriage supporters in a state where residents will vote on gay marriage this fall.
Dill held an event Wednesday outside City Hall to praise the Democratic Party's decision to include marriage equality in its draft national platform to be considered at its convention. She said that Democrats "fight for civil rights — no qualifiers."
The Maine Republican Party issued a statement saying Mainers are more concerned about jobs.
In the Senate race, independent Angus King also supports gay marriage, while Republican Charlie Summers believes marriage is between a man and a woman.
Mainers rejected a gay marriage law approved by the Legislature in 2009. It's on the ballot again thanks to a successful referendum drive by gay marriage supporters.
