The organization spearheading the push to keep same-sex marriage legal in Maine has raised $2.7 million from 12,000 donors.

No on 1/ Protect Maine Equality announced on Tuesday that nearly half of the money has come from Maine residents. The numbers came from third-quarter filings, which covered the period between July 6 and September 30.

"What we've seen is that as more and more people have focused on Maine, more and more people have wanted to participate, whether that's writing a check or staffing a phone bank," No on 1 campaign manager Jesse Connolly said in a statement.

According to other figures, the average online donation was $95.45. On-the-street donations averaged out to $17.25. Only three out of 29 fund-raising events in the third quarter occurred out of the state, in Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.
