The Associated Press spoke with Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, for an article about Mike Michaud’s expected announcement that he will run for governor. Brewer said though some moderate Republicans may support other candidates, Gov. Paul LePage can expect to win at least a third of the vote based on his core conservative supporters, which is important in a three-way race. Sun Journal and the Charlotte Observer were among news organizations to carry the report.
The Bangor Daily News published an article about the success of Courtney Bed Inc., a Millinocket-based company that makes and sells handcrafted pediatric beds for special-needs children. Patrick Cyr started the company with the help of the University of Maine’s Knowledge Transfer Alliance.
