“I was going to vote for the man already. Makes me even more proud to vote for him now.
I think a majority of Mainers are decent and will make their decision based on his qualifications and if they agree with his vision. Although this may hurt him by a few percentage points I don't think this will be a reason to worry about.
However, what might get him is that he's going into a similar situation as in 2010 with a strong Independent. Hopefully this time around since Michaud will not have a bruising primary and since he is a stronger candidate than Libby Mitchell (and presumably will have a larger war chest)- maybe he will be able to edge out Cutler.
I hope Lepage shows some class and doesn't try to make this an issue, but given his track record, I'm doubtful. Interestingly, I just saw a tweet from Dan Demeritt, his former advisor, that he thinks Lepage should come out with a statement commending Michaud's candor. I doubt that too.”
“I believe it happened...............racist GOP Black man is toooooooo scary.....stupid and dumb........they make me sick......he has done so much for Americans...than u realize wtithout the help of Congress....”
