Maine’s first-term Democratic congressman said he’s not going to take a side in the state’s much-watched U.S. Senate race featuring Republican Susan Collins.
U.S. Rep. Jared Golden won a tight race against incumbent Republican Bruce Poliquin in Maine’s competitive 2nd Congressional District in 2018. The Sun Journal reports Golden said he respects both Collins and the top Democratic challenger, Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon.
But Golden also said his reason for staying out of the race is largely because he wants to have a good relationship with whomever wins the seat. He said his position is “neutral” and that “it takes personal relations to work together.”
