Maine Politics

From the Piscataqua to the St. John

Nowhere in this Kennebec Journal article, headlined "Closure could make Baldacci vulnerable" does it actually says that the base closure could hurt Baldacci. The closest it comes is this bit:
So Baldacci didn't seem to mind being asked Friday if the state's 2-and-1 standing in the latest closure round will help his quest for a second four-year term.

"The sun is shining a little brighter today," he said with a smile.

In fact, the exact same article in the Morning Sentinel is headlined "Bounce for Baldacci?"

The article discusses who should get credit for the good BRAC results and includes speculation on whether the good news will help Baldacci come election time, but nowhere does it discuss a downside for the Governor. This headline actually says exactly the opposite of what's written in the body of the piece.
