HOLDEN, Maine — National Rifle Association president David Keene is visiting Holden on Thursday to support U.S. Senate candidate Republican Charlie Summers.

A gathering will be held at noon at Maine Military Supply, 179 Main Road.

Summers, a Navy Reserves commander who served as a public affairs officer in Afghanistan and Iraq, is running against independent candidates Angus King, Andrew Ian Dodge, Steve Woods and Danny Dalton and Democrat Cynthia Dill to replace Sen. Olympia Snowe, a three-term senator and former eight-term U.S. House member, who is stepping down at the end of the year.
