Maine Democratic Party Chair Drew Gattine released the following statement on tonight’s gubernatorial debate hosted by the Portland Press Herald and Maine Public:
During tonight’s debate, Paul LePage once again demonstrated that he is unfit to govern Maine by lying repeatedly, launching false accusations against Governor Mills, and failing to understand simple questions about his plans for abortion rights.
LePage has a long history of attacking and denigrating fellow Mainers. During his time in office, LePage’s insults and threats against the people he was elected to serve repeatedly made national headlines.
Here is just a small selection of LePage’s bullying:
During tonight’s debate, Governor Janet Mills highlighted her stellar record of fighting for Maine’s schools, students, and teachers.
During tonight’s debate, Paul LePage tried to downplay the likelihood that he and his Maine GOP allies would restrict Maine women’s abortion rights. According to LePage, “never once did I attempt to even talk about abortion.”
At tonight’s gubernatorial debate, Paul LePage is going to lie…a lot. To help keep track of the lies, and make a fun game out of LePage’s inability to tell the truth, Maine Democrats have made the LiePage Debate Bingo Card, featuring some of LePage’s biggest lies from the campaign trail so far this year. Follow along to see which ones he breaks out at tonight’s debate!
