Maine Papers Weigh in on Question 1 

Two of Maine’s largest newspapers are expressing support for the “No On One” campaign.The Maine Sunday Telegram and weekend edition of the Bangor Daily News both had editorials supporting same sex marriage in Maine.The Telegram says limiting marriage to a man and a woman “Would not make families led by same-sex couples go away,” but just keep them in a legally inferior position.The Bangor Daily News printed that extending the right of marriage to a small segment of the population that has been excluded, furthers Maine’s interest in promoting stable families and communities.Meanwhile, Maine speaker of the house Hannah Pingree and former Maine attorney general Jim Tierney will hold a press conference in Portland Monday.They say they plan to refute recent claims and statements from a new television ad from the question one campaign.
