A spokesman for Maine Republicans has stepped down as he considers new job offers.

David Sorensen most recently served as spokesman for the Maine Republican Party, which successfully campaigned to reelect its governor and gain seats in the State House this month. He was on a leave of absence from his year-round job as the communications director for the Maine House Republicans.

Sorensen said his work with the state party ended after the election and he was slated to return to his job with the House Republicans, but he resigned from that position Wednesday.

A graduate of the University of Maine School of Law, Sorensen, 29, said he plans to stay in politics and is looking forward to “advancing the conservative principles elsewhere.”

Asked whether he will stay in Maine, Sorensen said, “We shall see.”

Jamie Carter, a legislative aide for the Maine House Republicans, has been the acting spokesman for the House Republicans during Sorensen’s leave.
