Following the conclusion of the third US Senate debate, Maine Democratic Party Chair Kathleen Marra released the following statement:

“Senator Collins is desperate to paper over her record as a rubber stamp for Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump because she knows that she’s been out of step with Maine for too long. Voters once trusted her to fight for us, but after decades in Washington, she sold us out in exchange for the support of corporate special interests and her party bosses.

“There is too much at stake in this election to put our trust in someone who has voted a dozen times to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act and won’t even be honest with us about who they think should be leading the country for the next four years. We need a champion in the US Senate working for all Mainers and Speaker Sara Gideon has the record to prove she’ll never stop fighting for our health care.”
