Levesque campaign opens Bangor office

BANGOR, Maine — Second Congressional District candidate Jason Levesque opened his third campaign office within his district with a grand opening celebration here on Wednesday.

“I am very happy to have this Bangor office join my other locations in Auburn and Millinocket, as we work hard to meet the great people of Maine and bring some accountability to Washington. The office will serve as a hub for volunteers, grass-roots activists and supporters who want to help bring some common sense, fiscal leadership to Congress,” Levesque said in a prepared statement.

The office is located at 543 Broadway and will serve all Republican candidates for offices in Bangor and within the region on the local, regional and statewide levels.

Running against U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, Levesque opened offices on Main Street in Lincoln and on Penobscot Avenue in Millinocket late last month. The 35-year-old marketing executive has an office in Auburn, his hometown, as well.

Levesque captured his party’s endorsement in the primary last month. He ran unopposed. About 131,000 Republicans cast tallies, outnumbering Democrats at the polls.

Since his campaign’s start more than a year ago, Levesque said he has traveled more than 43,000 miles within the district’s 27,326 square miles.

He said he already has raised more than double the money raised by Michaud’s two previous GOP challengers, but declined to name figures.

Levesque has made more than 70 fact-finding visits in the northern reaches of his district over the last few months.
