Maine GOP Reaffirms Marriage Opposition

Via the Maine Press-Herald:
On the heels of the 2012 convention that highlighted divisions within Maine’s GOP, Republicans emphasized the importance of bringing together all factions of the party for a common cause this year. “We need to be united in our efforts to work for a better Maine,” said Cary Weston, a former mayor of Bangor who is running for state Senate. The party on Friday adopted a new platform that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman and urges the repeal of the Common Core Standards, uniform educational benchmarks in reading, writing and math. The platform also praises LePage and GOP lawmakers for enacting the largest tax cut in Maine history and preventing the Democratic-controlled Legislature from expanding Medicaid under the federal health care law.
