UMaine political scientist Mark Brewer was interviewed for a Reuters report on the Fox Business and Chicago Tribune websites that appeared before the vice presidential debate. Brewer predicted Biden would be much more aggressive than Obama was in his first debate against Mitt Romney last week. Comments from UMaine political scientist Amy Fried were included in an Associated Press article that appeared on the Boston Globe website about how out-of-state funding is affecting race for Maine’s open U.S. Senate seat. Fried said she understands candidates’ frustrations with the expenditures in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing unlimited outside expenditures by super PACs.
