Bangor Daily News quotes Professor Emeritus Hodgkin on Republican candidate
The Bangor Daily News, in its profile of Maine Republican gubernatorial candidate Paul LePage, a fiscal conservative, quotes Professor Emeritus of Political Science Douglas Hodgkin. LePage is a front-runner on the Republican side, having won straw polls at various Republican caucuses and having the most supporters at the state convention, says reporter Christopher Cousins. “But according to Douglas Hodgkin, professor emeritus of political science at Bates College, that does not guarantee he’ll run away with the nomination. ‘It isn’t a good indicator of what rank-and-file Republican voters might do in the primary…. It is one indicator out of several that we could use.'” View story from the Bangor Daily News, May 13, 2010.
