MPBN Speaks with Brewer About Campaign Spending

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network quoted Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, for a report titled, “Record spending forecast for Maine races as ad barrage intensifies.” Brewer said legislative candidates may find radio ads are a better option than television for reaching their districts. Brewer also said he agreed with what an analyst said on an NPR broadcast. “They said that the big winner in the 2014 election cycle nationwide isn’t going to be the Democrats or the Republicans, it will be people that own local television stations. And I think that is absolutely true,” he said.
