Morning Sentinel quotes Brewer in article on Rep. Poliquin putting house on market

The Morning Sentinel spoke with Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, for an article about U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin putting his Oakland house up for sale. Poliquin, now in his second term in the United States House of Representatives, has claimed residency in Oakland since early 2014, when he announced he was running for Congress in the state’s 2nd District, according to the article. Poliquin’s press secretary said he has been looking to downsize since his son graduated from college, and that the congressman intends to find another home in the Oakland area. Brewer said Poliquin putting his house up for sale certainly could mean he’s considering a run for governor, but he doesn’t think Poliquin would want to send an overly confident message about a potential run. “My guess is that the reason is what he says it is,” Brewer said. “But we won’t know for sure until it all plays out.”
