Vote King

Angus King is a politician who, like Margaret Chase Smith, William Cohen, and George Mitchell, has served Maine and the country with integrity and common sense.

With foresight and courage, the senator announced that he would not vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. Lifetime appointments should require substantial bipartisan support, but this process, too rushed and flawed, became downright ugly when accusations of Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct surfaced. But Angus didn’t wait for this debacle to make his decision. After closely studying Kavanaugh’s judicial record, King found it raised questions about issues we both support, such as health care for everyone, women’s equality, civil rights, and protection of the environment. Thus Senator King decided he should not be on the Supreme Court.

Not a pawn for any political party, Angus studies the issues, uses research and reason to find the best course of action, and joins others across party lines to make that happen. Let’s continue the proud Maine tradition of sending outstanding leaders to Washington by voting for Sen. King this November.

In support of Holbrook

A patriot is a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.

A politician is a person who is professionally involved in politics, especially as a current holder of an elected office.

The first would choose smaller, more efficient government; the latter, big government!

I submit that we voters have a distinct choice to make this Nov. 6. We can continue big government, which Chellie Pingree represents, or we can replace her with a proponent of efficient, smaller, responsible government, Dr. Mark Holbrook, PhD!

As our present situation in Congress i.e. Republican efforts toward better government that is being stonewalled by the democrats, now is the time to make a change! Please vote for Republican Dr. Mark Holbrook, PhD, for Representative of the First District, Maine!

Sick spectacle 

I am sick to see how low the democrats gone to further their socialist agenda. To compel a sexually abused women to testify when she wanted to remain anonymous and could have remained anonymous is despicable. To trash a man’s stellar reputation with unsubstantiated allegations is also despicable. This totally sick spectacle could have completely avoided but for the Democrats. Republicans are equally at fault by not holding a vote and letting the chips fall where they may.We the people have got to stand up and vote for some semblance of common sense.
