    PORTLAND
    – U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, the Democratic nominee for governor, released the campaign’s first TV ad today. The ad, titled “Millworker,” highlights Michaud’s working-class Maine roots and commitment to bringing Democrats, Republicans and independents together to get things done.

    The 30-second, unscripted biographical ad will begin airing in the Portland, Bangor and Presque Isle media markets on Tuesday, August 5. The positive ad focuses on Michaud’s upbringing and the values of compromise and hard work he learned while growing up in a large Franco-American family and working at the Great Northern Paper Company for 29 years, including during his tenure in the Maine State Legislature.

    “Mainers deserve to have a governor who shares their values and understands their concerns, and we couldn’t think of a better way to demonsrate Mike will be that governor than to have him introduce himself in his own words,” said Michaud for Maine Campaign Manager Matt McTighe. “Mainers are frustrated and tired of the anger and divisiveness of the last three and a half years, which is why we are focused on running a positive campaign highlighting Mike’s vision, experience and proven track record of bringing people together to move Maine forward in a positive direction.”

Some of the stats of the field operation and support thus far, provided by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud, who told how “Maine voters are energized and ready for change in Augusta”:

    “More than 16,000 doors”
    “More than 300,000 phone calls”
    “More than 15,000 calls made in one night recently”
    “More than 1000 doors in a day”
    “15,000 unique donations of $50 or less”
    “Over $2 million raised”
