The re-election campaign of Maine Gov. Paul LePage was in the pits today - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In this case, the setting was a gravel pit filled with supportive construction workers, as LePage accepted the endorsement of the Associated Builders and Contractors of Maine. The Republican governor used the event to promise to help Maine workers get the skills they need to earn a livable wage. But the governor's critics point to LePage's veto of a bill to raise the state minimum wage, as proof that he's not serious about improving Mainers incomes.
