Two Democrats endorse Cutler for governor

AUGUSTA, Maine — Two Democratic legislators are endorsing independent Eliot Cutler for Maine governor, saying he’s best qualified for the office.

Sen. Dennis Damon of Trenton, who’s co-chaired the Marine Resources and Transportation committees, and Rep. Leila Percy of Phippsburg, a Marine Resources co-chair, announced their endorsements Sunday. Their announcements did not mention their party’s nominee, Senate President Elizabeth “Libby” Mitchell.

Last week, Mitchell won the endorsement of the Maine AFL-CIO. The labor federation says Mitchell’s voted favorably on labor issues consistently.

Also running is Republican candidate Paul LePage and two other independents.
