PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Just more than a month before election day, gay marriage supporters continue to bring in far more contributions than opponents in their referendum drive in Maine.

Friday marked a deadline for quarterly campaign finance reports in the race.

Mainers United for Marriage, which is leading the drive to legalize same-sex marriage, said $2.2-million was raised during the reporting period. That pushes its total to about $3.4-million.

Protect Marriage Maine PAC, which is fighting the referendum, said it raised about $370-thousand during the latest recording period.

That includes $250-thousand from the National Organization for Marriage's political action committee; Carroll Conley Jr. says that brings its total to about $415-thousand.
