Matt Hutson, who was campaign manager for state Treasurer Bruce Poliquin's U.S. Senate run, has been hired as campaign director by Protect Marriage Maine. His wife, Megan, will serve as grassroots coordinator, the campaign announced Wednesday.
"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 Republican 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 Hutson said in a prepared 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."
