FREEPORT, Maine — The Maine Democratic Party’s annual Muskie Lobster Bake will go on as scheduled despite heavy rain and high winds brought on by Hurricane Irene.
The deputy campaign manager of President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign will be joining Democrats at Sunday’s event at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport.
Jen O’Malley Dillon is a New England native and longtime Democratic organizer who served as Obama’s battleground states director in 2008.
Additional special guests are U.S. Reps. Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree.
The fundraiser is named in honor of the late Edmund S. Muskie, who served as Maine governor, U.S. senator and U.S. Secretary of State during his political career.
