BREWER — U.S. Sen. Angus King is meeting with Brewer High School students, even though he’ll be nearly 700 miles away.

The independent senator is holding what he calls a “Capitol Class” with students on Wednesday as part of his effort to digitally connect with as many Maine high schools as possible while in Washington.

To make it happen, King meets face-to-face with Maine students through video teleconference from the U.S. Senate recording studio in Washington.

King has already met with a number of other high schools by remote teleconference.
