Matt Hutson, who served as campaign manager for state Treasurer Bruce Poliquin's U.S. Senate run, has been hired as campaign director by Protect Marriage Maine.
And, his wife Megan, will serve as grassroots coordinator, the campaign announced today.
"Matt and Megan are a great addition to our team," said Bob Emrich, chairman of Protect Marriage Maine. "They share our belief that traditional marriage clearly benefits society, and are strongly committed to protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman."
Matt Hutson has also worked as state director for GOP rising star Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and was the central region director for Rick Santorum for president.
"Megan and I believe strongly in the sanctity of marriage and are thrilled to work with Protect Marriage Maine," Matt said in a statement. "If the initiative on the November ballot passes, marriage will be redefined for everyone and will be the only legal definition of marriage for anyone in Maine."Tweet
