Sun Journal quotes Fried in article on Maine’s 2nd District race

The Sun Journal spoke with Amy Fried, a political science professor at the University of Maine, for the article “Control of U.S. House could hinge on Maine race.” With a month to go before Election Day, the contenders for Maine’s 2nd District congressional seat — Republican incumbent Bruce Poliquin and Democratic challenger Jared Golden — are locked in one of the closest races in the country, according to the article. “It’s going to be a very, very well-funded race,” Fried said, with the candidates and outside groups running a stream of ads on television, cable and online. Fried also said it’s telling that neither Golden nor Poliquin talks about President Donald Trump much, an indication the president remains popular in the district but not so popular that his influence can propel the Republican to victory, the article states. The Portland Press Herald also published the Sun Journal article.
