The Obama campaign in Maine will be formally launched this weekend, according to an email sent to supporters from Obama's new state director, Toby McGrath.
The first item of business is door-to-door canvassing in Auburn, Bangor, Fort Fairfield, Lewiston, Lincoln, Portland and Waterville. If you've got some free time over the weekend, sign up here.
One of the great things about the Obama organization in other states has been their willingness to include down-ballot races, including local state House and Senate candidates in their canvassing and get-out-the-vote efforts. No word yet on how this will work in Maine.
