As Mike Tipping reports today in The Tipping Point blog, attendance at the Republican-orchestrated pro-LePage rally yesterday in Augusta (including the Maine Heritage Policy Center) didn’t come even close to the numbers posted at the anti-LePage rally later in the day, a spontaneous, bi-partisan event put together at the last minute via social media.

“The anti-LePage gathering, which was organized following his threatening of funding for at-risk students at a school rung by Good Will-Hinckley in order to force the firing of his political rival, House Speaker Mark Eves, was far larger than the pro-LePage event. Bangor Daily News reporter Mario Moretto described attendance as “some 200 people” at the rally outside the Capitol, while the pro-LePage contingent numbered “several dozen” inside the State House Hall of Flags. Blogger Andi Parkinson put the numbers at 300 and 75, respectively.”
