Many Mainers have put their hope for a more moderate leader into the hands of 6-term Congressman Mike Michaud. He's been leading the polls in what is shaping up to be another 3-way race with the same strong independent contender as a two-party spoiler.
In the paper this morning, Mike publicly announced he was gay. It wasn't really a surprise to most, but this is the first time he, himself, made this personal fact known to the Maineaverse.
In Sept. the governor race polls looked about like this: Mike Michaud ~ 40%, Incumbant Lepage ~ 34%, the Independent Cutler ~ 17% and the rest undecided.
How much impact do you think this morning's headline will have?
