Steve Abbott joins Republicans supporting gay marriage
Steve Abbott, a former candidate for Maine governor and the current athletic director at the University of Maine, said Thursday he’s joining other prominent Republicans who support the same-gender marriage proposal on this fall’s ballot.
He joins ... Ken Mehlman, former chairman of the Republican National Committee and Kenneth Lindell, a former state representative from Frankfort. Republican state Rep. Stacey Fitts of Pittsfield already has announced in TV ads that he will vote for the measure.
One of the major differences between the Maine GOP and Democratic platforms is their stand on same sex marriage. Looks like the lines are getting blurred.
