It’s the top story in the news — the coming vote on confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court — and it’s presenting Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine with possibly the most consequential vote of her career.

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, a Democrat from Maine’s 1st District, has held her seat and defended it convincingly for a decade.

It’s geographically vast and rural.  It was held by Democrats for nearly 20 years and most recently by a Republican. But now, it’s been identified as a seat that’s up for grabs. This week on Maine’s Political Pulse, we’re talking about Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. Sharing their insights on that four-way race are Maine Public political reporters Steve Mistler and Mal Leary.  They spoke with Maine Public’s Deputy News Director Susan Sharon.

Today we begin a new series of talks here on Morning Edition, tapping into the expertise of our top political reporters, Steve Mistler and Mal Leary. With them, we’ll be taking Maine's political pulse.
