Eliot Cutler just finished his concession speech at his Commercial Street headquarters. (His staff had already begun clearing it out before the speech.)
About an hour earlier, he'd called Paul LePage to concede
close," someone said by way of greeting. "Close doesn't
count," he said dryly before approaching the podium.
With the Bangor Daily News predicting a LePage win, Eliot Cutler's campaign staff have begun clearing out the campaign office on Commercial Street. Here is a pic of a bunch of Cutler promo materials in the Dumpster.
Cutler himself is slated for a press conference at noon, at which he is expected to concede.
Our gubernatorial endorsement comes out in tomorrow's paper. In the meantime, check out this longshot Shawn Moody endorsement from The Maine Campus. The Maine Green Independent Party also published the results of their candidate interviews this week. Looks like Cutler comes out at the top of their analysis.
