Maine’s U.S. Senate race has something for everyone – left, right or center.
And on Friday, candidates of all stripes will be casting for votes at three different public forums in southern and coastal Maine.
The six Republican candidates are scheduled to be at a forum Friday at 7 at Camden Hills High School in Rockport. They are: Former Maine Sen. Rick Bennett, businessman Scott D’Amboise, Maine Sen. Debra Plowman, Maine Treasurer Bruce Poliquin, Attorney General William Schneider and Secretary of State Charlie Summers.
The four Democrats are scheduled to be at a forum at 7 p.m. at Kennebunk Town Hall. They are Maine Sen. Cynthia Dill, former Secretary of State Matt Dunlap, Maine Rep. Jon Hinck and businessman Benjamin Pollard.
Not to be left out, independent former Gov. Angus King will be at a forum at 5:30 at the University of New England’s Blewett Hall, 716 Stevens Avenue in Portland.
The event is being organized by No Labels, a national group trying to reduce partisanship in Congress. It also will feature Eliot Cutler, former independent candidate for governor, and Bill Gallston, a co-founder of No Labels.Tweet
