Pingree’s first ad for her 2010 congressional campaign.
PINGREE: I understand with small businesses mean to Maine. From the knitting company I founded to the restaurant my family and I now run, I know what it's like to pay taxes and meet a payroll.
ANNOUNCER: It’s why Chellie is standing up to the special interests to put local businesses first. She fought to increase lending and cut taxes for small business so they can expand and grow.
PINGREE: I’m Chellie Pingree and I approve this message, because it's small businesses on Main Street not Wall Street that drive our local economy and keep me working.
