Chellie Pingree today launched her first ad of 2010, with a focus on small businesses.
In District 2, Mike Michaud launched his first TV ad of the election last week, highlighting his work for Maine's veterans.
Michaud's opponent, Republican Jason Levesque, has taken this as a sign of weakness. In an email to supporters, he wrote:
During the past two election cycles (2006 and 2008), my opponent felt confident enough in his re-election, he didn’t even bother airing any television ads. Maybe it was the political climate; maybe it was opponents without the proper resources.
Well, times have changed. With polls consistently showing Mike Michaud with under 50 percent support of his constituents, Congressman Mike Michaud has just launched his first television commercial in four years—and we’re only in September!
