An initiative to repeal existing gay marriage rights in Maine, called Question 1, is headed for a vote soon, and Rachel Maddow takes a look at how tactics employed successfully by gay marriage opponents in California during the Prop 8 battle are being imported wholesale into Maine.

Maddow interviews Jesse Connolly, campaign manager for "No on 1 Protect Marriage Equality", about the fight to preserve marriage equality in Maine.
