AUGUSTA – After weeks of speculation, Congressman Mike Michaud launched an exploratory campaign for Governor of Maine today. Michaud also announced a campaign website where Mainers can donate and sign up to join his campaign. 

The Maine Democratic Party released the following statement:

“Bottom line, we are pumped! And Maine voters should be too!

“This Governor’s race is one of the most important in Maine’s history and voters deserve the opportunity to vote for a candidate who they know, beyond a doubt, is in it for them. That candidate is Congressman Mike Michaud.  Not only is he a committed leader who has proven himself year after year as a champion for the middle class, small businesses and working families but, he’s also a down-to-earth, all-around nice guy who has never lost touch with his deep Maine roots. To know Mike is to like him, to trust him, and to know he’ll always do what’s right for the people of Maine. You can’t ask for anything more than that. 

“Now it’s time to for us to hit the ground running. The Maine Democratic Party and the Democratic Governor’s Association are 100% committed to putting together the most well financed and aggressive campaign in Maine’s history. Momentum is on our side as dissatisfaction with the current Administration grows daily. Regardless of who is in the race, with a strong campaign behind him Congressman Michaud can and will win. The voters of Maine will make sure of it.”
