Brewer Quoted in Article About Emily Cain’s Congressional Race

A group is rallying early for Emily Cain — former state senator from Orono —  in anticipation of the 2016 primary, reported an article in Cain lost to U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin in the 2014 race for Maine’s 2nd congressional district.

Mark Brewer, University of Maine political science professor, said external factors should favor Democrats, calling the race a toss-up and Emily Cain is a strong candidate.

“That all being said, Poliquin’s going to be tough to beat in November of 2016,” he said.
