Professor of Government Joseph Reisert weighs in on the candidacy of Maine gubernatorial candidate Bill Beardsley. “You have several candidates who all are presenting themselves as successful businesspeople, or at least as successful private sector managers — Otten, Beardsley, as well as Jacobsen and Poliquin, all of whom in different ways are saying, ‘Look, we’ve run businesses, large organizations,'” Reisert says. “And how they differentiate themselves, one from another, I think is a real challenge for them.”
