SOUNDBITES — “I think people may not understand the magnitude of what we were up against. They had four years to build an effective grassroots organization and claimed 8,000 volunteers in a state with a population of only 1.3 million. Still they lost — and by a larger margin than in California. [It’s hard to see] how they convince their base to fund another campaign. At this point they are 0 for 31.” —Brian Brown, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, on winning in Maine
