SPM helped the Republican Governors Associate reelect Governor of Maine Paul LePage in one of the most difficult races in the country. Maine is Democrat leaning state, and Gov. LePage fought tough fights with the legislature in his first term. SPM helped the RGA remind Maine voters that Gov. LePage came to office as a businessman, not a politician, and had kept the promises he made to the voters.
In Georgia, Jason Carter, the grandson of President Jimmy Carter, made a strong push to defeat Republican Governor Nathan Deal. SPM successfully defined Carter as being an overly ambitious young politician who voted against sensible legislation to please partisan interests. While many pundits predicted this would be a very close race, Governor Deal ended up winning comfortably.
