1. Primary Election Next Tuesday!
We're down to the wire here folks!
All this activity, of course, is leading up to the primary election next Tuesday. Everything we've worked for these many months (and years) depends on YOU getting out and voting, and getting as many of your friends and neighbors to do likewise.
- The convention is over,
- The newspaper profiles have been written (Bangor Daily News and Maine Sunday Telegram),
- The TV and radio interviews have been taped and most of them have aired,
- The endorsements have come in (Bangor Daily News, ImpeachPAC, Dennis Kucinich, Veterans Party, etc.),
- The radio ads are on the air,
- The roadside signs are going up,
- The last appearances are on the calendar.
- And my 1993 fuel-efficient American-made Saturn just topped 310,000 miles.
Please contact 10 people and urge them to join us in our effort to take back our country. If each of you does that, if each of you and each of your friends votes for the America we all want to live in, we will win this primary, and we will go on to win in November.
Thank you all for all of your support and all of your work and contributions the past 17 months that I've been on the campaign trail. I couldn't have gotten this far without you.

2. Bangor Daily News Endorses Jean!
"...Jean Hay Bright, on the other hand, is already well-known among Democrats, and she has a firm grasp of Maine politics and is a strong defender of her party's ideals. ...Jean Hay Bright is a good choice."
3. Hay Bright endorsed by Congressman Dennis Kucinich
In urging Maine Democrats to support her nomination in the June 13 primary, Kucinich said, "Jean can win in November because Maine is ready to vote for peace and sustainability."
"The tide is beginning to turn nationally," Kucinich said Thursday. "Jean's election to the Senate will spark a new beginning not only in Maine, but across America. Her courage and her heart are needed in the Senate."
Kucinich told the campaign that he appreciated Hay Bright's strong support of his presidential bid two years ago, when Hay Bright was an active volunteer in his effort in Maine. The Ohio Congressman said he expects to campaign for Hay Bright in the fall.
4. Last Weekend's Maine Democratic Party Convention was a Huge Success!
Thanks go out to everyone who made the MDP convention this weekend a huge hit. My speech Saturday, June 3, 2006, was well-received. People loved our booth with the long and contantly growing list of supporters. And our hospitality suite both Friday and Saturday nights at the Holiday Inn, featuring Maine grown and organic food and drink, was a great success.
