A wise man once said to me, “You may not like where I stand, but you’ll always know where I stand.”

Shortly after the shootings at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, I spoke with a staff member in Rep. Bruce Poliquin’s office about these events and the need for a common-sense approach to address such tragedies. Appropriately, he responded in a timely manner by mail with a detailed and thoughtful letter clearly explaining his position. I remain appreciative of that.

As our (and his, I remind him) Sen. Susan Collins said recently, “It isn’t worth being in public life if you can’t clearly speak on what is right for our country.” Now that’s character.

Your constituents deserve the same, sir. Answer the question, Rep. Poliquin: Where do you stand on Donald Trump?
