Fried Quoted in Mainebiz Article About Maine Governor Race

Amy Fried, a political science professor at the University of Maine, was quoted in a Mainebiz article about the state’s gubernatorial race. Fried spoke about independent candidate Eliot Cutler — who is polling last behind Gov. Paul LePage and U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud — and whether she thinks he will drop out of the race. “It’s hard to know if Cutler would drop out. If he were to do so, he would probably wait until very close to Election Day,” Fried said, adding he has invested a lot of his own money in the race and has told supporters to stay with him until the end.
