An email from the campaign:
We have a new TV ad on the air today, and I wanted to make sure you had a chance to see it:
In Maine, we value our local teachers, our parents, and all our families. When the Question 1 campaign attacked them, we knew we had to stand up and be counted. And we did in 36 hours.
Thanks for your support-- I hope you like the ad.

Referendum 71 must be approved by voters so all Washington families are treated equally under the law, and so that we can keep the domestic partnership law. Young voters tend not to vote in off year elections. WE NEED YOU TO VOTE! [Link]

Today, our opponents launched their first TV ad -- and not surprisingly, it's full of the same sort of distortion and fear-mongering that was so successful in passing California 's Prop 8. They've already bought $700,000 in airtime-- that means every voter in the state will see their ad at least 20 times. We know we can win this campaign to protect marriage equality in Maine . But our latest poll confirms that to win, we need to match our opponents dollar-for-dollar, ad-for-ad. We're almost there, but we need your help to keep our message of fairness and equality on the air through the end of September.
Right now, we're just $21,740 short of our goal for next week's TV ad buy, but we need the money in hand by Thursday. Can you chip in to help us combat these misleading ads?
In Maine, we believe in fairness, equality and personal freedom. Neighbors support neighbors, and we all come together to make our state great. Marriage equality reflects that, and ensures that everyone is treated equally under the law.
Our opponents know that to defeat us, they need to flood the airwaves with fear-mongering, lies and distortion. They need to mislead the good people of Maine and change the subject by inventing so-called consequences of marriage equality.
We can't let them get away with it. We must fight back and tell the truth. Can you chip in today to help us stay on the air?
Thanks for your support -- together, we can defeat this measure and protect marriage equality.
