Tonight, Election Night - Tuesday, November 2nd at 8 PM at the Hilton Garden Inn, 14 Great Falls Plaza, Auburn, Jason Levesque will be holding his 'Results Watching Party'.

The event is being hosted by Angelia Levesque, Tracey Levesque, Kevin & Trisha Fletcher, Georgia Chomas, Dolores Pillsbury, Jason & Ryan Allen, Timothy Lajoie, and Dr. Thomas Shields. Light refreshments will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

Mr. Levesque would like to celebrate with the folks who have given so much to his campaign. He invites folks to just come. No RSVP required. 'Just show up!' he says.

If you have any questions about the event just email him at or call 207-514-0596.

This morning Mr. Levesque will be campaigning with Senator Snowe. At 8am they will be at Governor's Restaurant 1185 Lisbon Street Lewiston, ME, and at 8.40am at Happy Days Diner, 67 Mill Street Auburn, ME.

He and his wife Tracey will be voting at 9.30am at Fairview Elementary School in Minot Ave. Auburn.

At 8pm They will hold their campaign celebration.

With the race between Jason Levesque and Mike Michaud a dead heat, 'Realclear Politics' rates this race as a toss-up, and Mr. Levesque has received endorsements from over 60 members of the National Federation of Independent Business group, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and various newspapers across the district.

Lewiston Sun Journal wrote:

"And, it's very hard to accept Michaud's campaign promises that he'll be tough on waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare and other government programs when he's been in Washington for the past eight years and has yet to exercise that tough streak... Michaud is a nice guy, a Blue Dog. We need a bulldog. Levesque is such an animal."

Waterville Morning Sentinel said:

"Most impressive is Levesque's forthright commitment to fiscal responsibility across every arena of government. While Michaud has shown flashes of it - his vote against the bank bailout is one example - we cannot call these stances a hallmark of his legislative record."

Portland Press Herald is on record as saying:

"Levesque has abundant energy and the enthusiasm to represent Maine well in Congress, and to send a message to Washington that times have changed."

And the Kennebec Journal wrote:

"In these waning days of the campaign, it has become clear that Levesque has benefited greatly from launching his campaign for Congress in mid-2009. He's used this time to sharpen his policy positions, explore the district and polish himself as a candidate."

Mr. Levesque says:

Mike Michaud's record is one of empty promises. Eight years ago he talked about the need to create jobs, but now we have some of the highest unemployment in the nation. I believe that it is time for a new direction in washington.
