AUGUSTA, Maine — The leading political action committee opposed to Maine’s gay marriage referendum raised nearly $1 million in October, with most of the money coming from the National Organization for Marriage. In its latest financial report, Protect Marriage Maine said it raised $950,000 from Oct. 1-23. That pushed its overall fund-raising to $1.4 million. The Kennebec Journal reported that of that $950,000, $800,000 came from the National Organization for Marriage, a national anti-gay-marriage group. The Knights of Columbus gave $100,000. Mainers United for Marriage, which is leading the campaign in favor of the Nov. 6 ballot question asking Mainers if they want to legalize same-sex marriage, said it brought in $964,000 from Oct. 1-23. Mainers United has raised about $4.3 million overall. (AP)
