bduffBrian Duff, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science, was quoted in a Bangor Daily News story May 7, 2010 on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rosa Scarcelli’s campaign strategy of positioning herself as an outsider. "There is a substantial anti-establishment mood among voters right now, Duff said. The question for Scarcelli is how much favor will that message win with the hard-core Democrats who typically show up for primaries — especially when it is coming from a candidate who has never held office before. 'That language is going to appeal to some people,' Duff said. 'It is not going to appeal to as many people in the Democratic primary, and that is going to be her hurdle.'”
