Gay Marriage Supporters Staff Up in Maryland




    A group supporting Maryland's same-sex marriage law is gearing up to defend it, if opponents succeed in putting the matter on the ballot for voters to decide in November.

    Marylanders for Marriage Equality on Thursday announced the campaign has opened two offices and hired staff.

    The offices are in Baltimore and Silver Spring. The group said additional office space is expected in coming months.

    The group also said it has hired 12 field staffers to work across the state.
