Brewer speaks to WABI about possible political rematch in Maine election

Mark Brewer, political science professor at the University of Maine, was interviewed for Washington News Bureau about the possibility of a rematch between Republican Bruce Poliquin and Democrat Jared Golden after the primary election. He said he suspects if Poliquin and Golden face off again, the campaign will get heated quickly. Brewer predicated that gun rights, abortion rights, and environmental issues will bring voters to the polls, but the economy will likely be the number one issue that drives most Maine voters to cast their ballots. “I think inflation is just the, the biggest item on the table and there’s not even a close second to it,” Brewer said. WABI (Channel 5 in Bangor) shared the Washington News Bureau report.
