Brewer Quoted in Press Herald Article on Primary Voting Results

Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, was quoted in a Portland Press Herald article about the results of the Democratic and Republican primaries for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. Emily Cain won the nomination as the Democratic candidate, and Bruce Poliquin won over Kevin Raye in the district’s Republican primary. Voter turnout was predictably low across the district, according to the article. Brewer said final turnout numbers would be a key factor in the Republican race, saying before the results were in that a heavy turnout would benefit Raye and a low turnout would help Poliquin.
