Brewer speaks to U.S. News and World Report abortion and the Maine governor election

Mark Brewer, professor of political science, was interviewed by U.S. News and World Report about how the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade will impact the upcoming gubernatorial election in Maine. “Democrats are certainly making the overturning of Roe a big issue across the board, starting with Mills. Republicans are trying to avoid the issue altogether,” Brewer said. Brewer added that, while polls haven’t documented the scale of abortion’s impact on the political environment, “I strongly suspect the Democrats are benefitting.”
