In Maine’s gubernatorial race, it appears that Independent candidate Eliot Cutler has all the momentum. Republican front-runner Paul LePage has maintained a weak lead with roughly 33% support in the polls, while support has begun to erode for Democrat Libby Mitchell. But support for Cutler has doubled over the last month, leaving him poised to give LePage a run for his money on election day. At the same time, Cutler has received a virtual avalanche of endorsements from newspapers across the state in recent weeks, including those of the Bangor Daily News, the Lewiston Sun Journal, the Portland Press Herald, the York Weekly, the USM Free Press, the Portland Phoenix, and the Times Record. As we approach the final weekend before the election, Cutler is well-positioned to overtake the Democrat and potentially come out on top in the race for the Blaine House.
