The campaign manager for the group that put same-sex marriage back on the ballot in Maine believes additional organizing time will lead to a victory for gay marriage supporters come November.

Matt McTighe, campaign manager for Mainers United for Marriage, told MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts that those three years gave his group enough time to convince the state’s 900,000-plus registered voters to vote the other way this time.
