ME: Same-sex marriage repealed

— "Maine voters overturned the state's same-sex marriage law yesterday, delivering a potentially crushing blow to gay-rights advocates after a year when their cause seemed to be gaining momentum with legislative and legal victories in four states. As the ballot counting continued well past midnight, the margin continued to grow -- with 52.7 percent of voters in favor of the repeal -- and the Associated Press called the contest in favor of gay-marriage foes shortly before 1 a.m. The 'people's veto' came six months after Maine's law was approved, and one year after California voters rejected gay marriage by a similar margin."
