Tonight’s Maine gubernatorial debate had several memorable moments. Governor LePage claimed that $100,000 is “not that rich” (never mind that that’s over twice the state’s median income). He admitted that “I cannot create jobs,” while in the same breath bragging about putting 3,500 Mainers out of work through his hiring and firing power.
But we’d be remiss if we didn’t especially highlight even more touching examples of the LePage-Cutler bromance that took place tonight at USM. Eliot Cutler had the Governor’s back, snapping that “this is your problem, not the Governor’s,” while LePage went out of his way to say “Eliot, I agree with you.” But actions speak louder than words, and Governor LePage tenderly patting Eliot Cutler’s arm pretty much says it all.
