November 3, 2006: During the final four days of her gubernatorial campaign, Pat LaMarche will focus attention where it belongs: on the healthcare needs of every Mainer. Starting in Rumford, Maine, Pat will visit small rural towns with hospitals in 34 towns to emphasize her support for universal heath care and tax relief for all Maine people.
November 3, 2006: In a preview of how a LaMarche Administration would include the brightest and best from all across the political spectrum, several prominent Democrats and Republicans have stepped across party lines to endorse Green-Independent Pat LaMarche for governor, among them a former Democratic candidate for governor.
November 2, 2006: Pat LaMarche won 54% of the votes in the first instantaneous mobile voter poll taken after a televised political debate using 'American Idol' style voting techniques. Based on the high volume of traffic on www.pat2006.com, word on the street, and now this cell phone poll, Pat LaMarche is on course to be the next governor of Maine.
October 31, 2006: With only a week left in the race, Maine's newspapers have split their gubernatorial endorsements between two candidates: two for Baldacci and two for LaMarche.
November 1, 2006, Portland PhoenixExcerpt: "It is time for real change, and Pat LaMarche will brighten the future of Maine. LaMarche would bring good people into her cabinet — including talented Republicans and Democrats with specialized expertise — to forge a multi-partisan approach based on what the best ideas are, without worrying about which party the brainstorm came from."
October 31, 2006, Boston GlobeExcerpt: "The state supreme court on Tuesday heard Green Independent candidate Pat LaMarche's expedited appeal of an ethics commission ruling that denied her extra Clean Elections funding. LaMarche contends she is due more money to offset spending by the Maine Democratic Party and the Republican Governors Association for TV ads that appear to promote Democratic Gov. John Baldacci and Republican challenger Chandler Woodcock."

October 31, 2006, Courier GazetteExcerpt: "Take a closer look at LaMarche's positions and you might agree that she makes more sense than any of the other candidates. While Mainers would likely be served adequately with a second Baldacci administration, ... LaMarche would be the activist needed to best steer the ship of state."
October 31, 2006, SMS Text News (United Kingdom)Excerpt: "I haven't seen anything like this level of true engagement yet in either America or the United Kingdom. I can't understand why the politicians and political minds I spoke to weren't up for doing what Pat's doing. You see, given that she's able to get a few thousand subscribers, she can stand there, thumping the podium at the University of Maine, and rather accurately state that she's listening. And reacting. This is the future of politics."

November 4, 2006, Team LaMarcheExcerpt: "In Skowhegan Pat was treated like royalty on Water Street. Mary Behn and her husband, owners of Mac's Taxi, rushed out to greet Pat. Then we went to the Empire Grill, an old-style diner, where Sgt. Genness had questions for Pat. Sgt. Genness started out as an undecided voter. When we left, she was sporting a LaMarche for Governor button and offered to volunteer!"
November 1, 2006, LaMarche Bangor OfficeExcerpt: "Having no health insurance creates a complicated situation, because you need to get back to work to pay the medical bills that will be arriving shortly. But, if you go back too soon and have a relapse, then you risk being out of work even longer."
October 31, 2006, LaMarche Bangor OfficeExcerpt: "One of our stalwart and very creative volunteers had a serious injury to his leg while working as a self-employed carpenter. Jim Freeman had surgery to repair his badly broken left leg on Friday 10/27. He is home in Verona recovering as we write this, and has agreed to let us chart his progress as a reminder of what is happening to the uninsured."
October 31, 2006, Bangor Daily NewsExcerpt: "I will be voting Green in the gubernatorial race next month. At the age of 68, and a longtime believer in the political system, it is clear to me that politics as usual has become irrelevant."
