Rep. Mike Michaud’s (D-Maine) opponents started a whisper campaign that the gubernatorial candidate is gay. So today, he published this op-ed that says, “Yes, I am. Why should it matter?”
He continues: “That may seem like a big announcement to some people. For me, it’s just a part of who I am, as much as being a third-generation mill worker or a lifelong Mainer. One thing I do know is that it has nothing to do with my ability to lead the state of Maine.”
