In recent Maine history, there have never been so many prominent politicians and leaders who have crossed party lines to endorse any single candidate from another party.
Jeff Toorish, a leading political consultant and former political journalist who is working on the LaMarche campaign said, "during my involvement in Maine politics for 30 years, I have never seen anything like this."
LaMarche says, "It is simply gratifying that our campaign has attracted the best and brightest from across the political spectrum — Žand that will give you a very good idea of what my administration will look like."
