Augusta, ME -- This week, the Maine Democratic Party announced the hiring of communications strategist Misha Linnehan. He will serve as Press Secretary.

Misha, who previously worked on the Maine Dems communications team during the 2020 election cycle, is returning to the party after a stint as Senior Communications Associate at J Street. A Maine native, he has also worked previously on Democratic campaigns in New Hampshire and Arizona.

“We are thrilled to welcome Misha back to our team as we ramp up our efforts to elect Democrats and maintain the Blaine House,” said Gaetan Davis, Executive Director of the Maine Democratic Party. “As a Mainer, he saw just how much damage Paul LePage did to our state as Governor, and how much important progress we’ve made in the three years since. He will play a vital role on our communications team reminding Maine voters about the stakes this November.”
