Michael H. (Mike) Michaud was born January 18, 1955 in Millinocket, Maine. He has been a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives since 2003, representing Maine's 2nd congressional district (map). He was first elected in 2002, narrowly defeating Republican Kevin Raye in the race to replace John Baldacci (who was elected Governor). The 2002 race garnered a great deal of publicity as, in a reverse of most Congressional races, Democrat Michaud was the pro-life candidate while Republican Raye was pro-choice. Michaud was the only freshman Democratic member of Congress to vote for 2003's ban on partial-birth abortion. He was re-elected in 2004, defeating Republican Brian Hamel of Presque Isle by a large margin. In the House he serves on the Veterans Affairs Committee, the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and the Small Business Committee. In the 2006 elections he won 70.5% of the vote against Republican Laurence S. D'Amboise. Image File history File linksMetadata No higher resolution available. ...
