MPBN Interviews Brewer About Political Impact of Michaud’s Announcement

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network spoke with Mark Brewer, an associate professor of political science at the University of Maine, about the political effects of gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud announcing he is gay. Brewer said what remains to be seen is whether special interest groups opposed to gay rights might try to capitalize on Michaud’s sexual orientation by making independent expenditures to benefit one of his opponents. Brewer said any candidate would have to publicly condemn those attacks, but what they do behind the scenes would remain unseen.
