No on 1/Protect Maine Equality announced Tuesday that is has raised $2.7 million from 12,000 donors in its efforts to keep same-sex marriage legal.
“What we’ve seen is that as more and more people have focused on Maine, more and more people have wanted to participate, whether that’s writing a check or staffing a phone bank,” No on 1 campaign manager Jesse Connolly said in a statement.
According to the Advocate, the money was raised between July 6 and September 30. Nearly half the money came from Maine residents, with an online donation average of $95.45 and on-the-street donations average of $17.25.
