Maine Voters Turned off by Negative Ads
09/24/2012   Reported By: Jay Field

Jay Field asked some voters in Bucksport today about all that negativity they're seeing on TV, how they're leaning in the U.S. Senate and presidential races and whether they believe their votes will help reverse Maine's economic slide.
