Local small business owners in the area endorsed Congressman Mike Michaud for Governor today at a press conference at Arabica Coffee on Commercial Street on the east end of Portland. The endorsement came prior to the election on Tuesday, November 4th – just a week from today. In what is billed as a close race, Michaud is, however, expected to defeat incumbent Governor Paul LePage for a second opportunity to expand his Tea Party partisanship – unpopular politics in the Portland area and southern Maine generally.
Welcoming Michaud and small business owners to the press conference was Arabica owner Kathy Walsh.
