Following the news that President Trump will make a campaign stop in Maine today, Maine Democratic Party Chair Kathleen Marra released the following statement:

"If President Trump thinks a last minute trip to Maine today will help voters forget about his lawsuit to strike down the Affordable Care Act that could take away health care from more than 100,000 Mainers overnight, or his failure to come up with a strategy to dig us out of the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression, he'll find out next Tuesday just how wrong he is. Mainers were happier when they didn't think we'd have to see him again in our state, and we'll be happier still when we replace him with Joe Biden on November 3."

“Meanwhile, Senator Susan Collins has enabled and emboldened Trump’s extreme agenda and failed leadership since the day he took office — she voted with him 94% of the time and helped him stack the federal judiciary with far-right judges who put Mainers at risk. We need leadership in Washington that isn’t afraid to hold Donald Trump accountable, and Senator Collins’ silence is all the proof voters need to see that she’s not up to the task.”
