Maine, USA - The Maine Democratic Party is thrilled to announce that former U.S. Representative Deb Haaland will be the keynote speaker at the Maine Democratic State Convention on June 1st. Haaland, a trailblazing leader and advocate for Democratic priorities, will bring her inspiring vision and experience to energize attendees and set the tone for the upcoming election cycle in Maine – including the stakes for abortion rights, health care for working families and seniors and our democracy.
