PORTLAND — George Mitchell, a former U.S. Senate majority leader from Maine, has released a new video endorsing Mike Michaud, the Democratic candidate for governor.
Mitchell, a Democrat, is the second former U.S. Senator to add their voice to the governor’s race. Former U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, a Republican, endorsed Republican Gov. Paul LePage on Wednesday.
In a video advertisement published on YouTube, Mitchell speaks about Michaud’s ability to “truly listen,” according to a release issued by Michaud’s campaign.
