A “Women for Michaud” rally by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which was scheduled for Wednesday in Portland in support of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud, has been postponed.

The Michaud campaign said in a written statement that the event will be rescheduled for sometime this fall. Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said she could not be in Maine this week.

“Mike Michaud is a champion for women’s health and rights and the contrast in this election couldn’t be clearer,” said Richards in a written statement. “I’m sorry that I won’t be able to be at the rally in Portland this week, but I look forward to coming up to Maine to support Mike later in the fall.”

The Planned Parenthood PAC endorsed Michaud’s candidacy in June.
