PORTLAND — Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud is announcing the senior staff members of his campaign for governor.

Michaud said Tuesday that Matt McTighe will serve as campaign manager in Michaud’s campaign against Republican Gov. Paul LePage and independent Eliot Cutler in the 2014 election. McTighe was the campaign manager for the successful 2012 same-sex marriage campaign that resulted in Mainers voting in favor of gay marriage.

David Farmer, a spokesman for former Gov. John Baldacci and communications director for the same-sex marriage campaign, has been named senior adviser to the campaign.

Maine Democratic Party communications director Lizzie Reinholt is the campaign’s director of communications. The party’s finance director, Rick Redmond, will have the same role for Michaud’s campaign.

Jackie Potter is the community outreach director.
