Members of Maine's Congressional Delegation Reluctant To Link Trump’s Rhetoric With Mass Shootings
In the immediate aftermath of two mass shootings in Ohio and Texas that left at least 31 dead, Maine's four members of Congress were quick to condemn the hatred and bigotry that appears to have motivated the alleged gunmen.
Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine says that she would support legislation to close what she calls “loopholes in the background check system” following two deadly mass shootings this weekend in Texas and Ohio.
Former U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin said on Sunday he wouldn’t run for the seat he was ousted from in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District in 2020, citing “family priorities” and saying he’s “itching to run again.”
State and federal campaign finance reports show a Maine Democratic Senate hopeful disclosed using her leadership political action committee to reimburse herself for political contributions in 2015 and 2016.
