Maine Republican Stacey Fitts voted against marriage equality while in office in 2009, but now he says the decision was a "chicken thing for me to do." Fitts is now appearing in ads encouraging other voters to support marriage equality as well.

"As I watched that evolve, it became clear that I wasn't in support of the veto effort," he told the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. "And that I wouldn't necessarily take a role — which, looking back, probably was another chicken thing for me to do."
