DGA Statement on Mike Michaud's Candidacy for Governor of Maine

Latest News

WASHINGTON, DC—Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin, Chair of the Democratic Governors Association, today issued the following statement regarding the official launch of Congressman Mike Michaud’s gubernatorial campaign:
“Mike Michaud understands the struggles of middle class families because he’s lived through them. Never forgetting where he came from, he has been a fierce advocate for working Mainers, veterans, and all those seeking access to quality affordable healthcare and world-class schools. It’s time to put an end to the embarrassment and ideological extremism that Paul LePage has forced upon the people of Maine, and Mike Michaud is the one candidate for governor who can get it done.”
