    ... liberal activists believe Mainers with strong Democratic voting records are having second thoughts about Michaud because of ads highlighting his position on welfare for undocumented immigrants. The conference call, held Thursday, included nearly a dozen representatives of liberal non-profits and was organized by Maine Equal Justice Partners, a 501(c)3 non-profit that has been a relentless critic of the LePage administration. The stated goal of the call was to develop a response to the RGA’s television and radio ads.

    The six-term congressman’s announcement in an op-ed column may influence the 2014 election to lead the state. Maine political observers offered early reaction Monday to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud’s announcement that he’s gay, ending years of speculation and potentially sharply changing the dynamic of the 2014 gubernatorial race. Michaud, 57, currently serving his sixth term in the U.S. House of Representatives, made the disclosure in a column submitted to three of the state’s major news outlets.He said he was making the announcement in response to “the whisper campaigns, insinuations and push polls” that unidentified people have been using to...

    CQ Roll Call ^ | June 13, 2013 | Emily Cahn
    Democratic Rep. Michael H. Michaud’s Thursday announcement that he is exploring a run for governor in Maine could spark crowded primaries for his competitive 2nd District. Michaud has won that district with comfortable margins for six terms, but his seat could be competitive if he launches a gubernatorial bid. President Barack Obama won it with 53 percent last year. “This obviously becomes a nationally targeted race if Michaud runs for governor,” said Erik Potholm, a Republican consultant who has worked extensively in Maine politics. “For Republicans, it’s a tremendous opportunity to pick up a new seat, because the … rural...

Michaud because they voted for President Obama's Stimulus Bill. He made the statement at a Town Hall Meeting with a lot of people - but with no Senators or legislators present. Instead, participants had put chairs at the front with pictures of their legislators in the chairs! The man talked to the pictures in calling for their resignations! That's what it has come to. The people are so fed up with what is happening they will...

    Dr. Howard Dean’s fans come out for the big Democratic summer shindig As Tom Andrews, the director of the leading national antiwar coalition, began his speech at the Maine Democrats’ big outdoor summer shindig in Falmouth, John Baldacci signaled his bodyguard/driver to move the large, dark SUV up the driveway. The vehicle soon hid in the trees, its engine quietly humming. At first, the governor seemed to be paying attention as Andrews, the former First District congressman, launched into rousing tales of how the country, under President George W. Bush, had gone "from peace and prosperity to war and recession."...

    Congressmen Michael Michaud and Congressman Tom Allen are liars! Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe are liars! Does that sound harsh? But, as you see, through the next two reports on existing legislation, it is true, Collins, Snowe, Michaud and Allen are liars, liars defined as being men or women who do not tell the truth, but instead say one thing and do the opposite. HR-552 Congressman Michael Michaud of Maine's second congressional district has claimed over and over again and has won his seat based upon the claim that he is Pro-Life, yet, he has refused to join in...

    Polls assess key campaigns By DAVID SHARP, Associated Press Democrat Michael Michaud and Republican Kevin Raye are locked in a tight congressional race in Maine's 2nd District, but heavy television advertising has not erased wide leads for Susan Collins and John Baldacci in the Senate and gubernatorial races, according to polls released Wednesday. One poll by Strategic Marketing Services showed Michaud leading Raye by 5.4 percentage points, a statistical dead heat after the margin of error was taken into account. The other, by Critical Insights, had Michaud ahead by 9 points. Both polls indicated Democrat Chellie Pingree still has considerable...
