Fried Quoted in New York Times Article on Maine Governor Race

Amy Fried, a political science professor at the University of Maine, was quoted in the New York Times article, “Outspoken governor tries to squeak by in 3-way Maine race.” According to the article, some political analysts say creating confusion over who to vote for instead of Republican Gov. Paul LePage — independent candidate Eliot Cutler or Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud — is one of the current governor’s campaign strategies. “There’s an attempt to create a certain degree of chaos so that anti-LePage voters who haven’t gone to Cutler yet will say that Michaud can’t win and will move to Cutler,” Fried said.
