The Nov. 8 vote in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District is a referendum on the performance of Rep. Bruce Poliquin in his first term in Congress. Voters have to decide whether he should be re-elected.
We believe Democrat Emily Cain deserves to replace him.
IN THE gloom and ugliness of this political season, one encouraging truth is often overlooked: There is a well-qualified, well-prepared candidate on the ballot. Hillary Clinton has the potential to be an excellent president of the United States, and we endorse her without hesitation.
In a moment, we will explain our confidence. But first, allow us to anticipate a likely question: No, we are not making this endorsement simply because Ms. Clinton’s chief opponent is dreadful.
A THREE-RING binder has now exposed the three-ring circus of unhinged racism and ravings that are the hallmarks of Maine’s governor, Paul LePage (R).
Rep. Bruce Poliquin and Democratic challenger Emily Cain are tied at 45 percent each in a Democratic poll of Maine's 2nd District obtained by Roll Call.
The poll, conducted by Normington Petts for the Cain campaign, shows similar results to a June poll that had the race tied.
Ten percent of voters were undecided in this month's poll, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent. The poll surveyed 400 likely voters on both landlines and cellphones from Sept. 21-22. Democrats made up 24 percent of the sample, Republicans 31 percent and Independents 45 percent.
