PORTLAND, Maine: Campaign representatives on both sides of Maine Question 1 say they are surprised at a relative lack of interest in their cause from outside the state.

Marc Mutty of Stand for Marriage Maine, according to a report in the Washington Post, "professes astonishment" at the lack of interest from national figures such as Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Mutty said, "What happens here is of great national import A lot of our folks seem to not fully get that." [1]

Supporters of same-sex marriage in the state are concerned that an October 11 March on Washington DC for Marriage Equality is taking time and attention away from Question 1.
