Olympia Snowe Issues Statement

As I reported last evening, Olympia did indeed issue a statement regarding Gov LePage’s inflammatory statement regarding Sen. Troy Jackson late yesterday. According to the Portland Press Herald, here is, in part, what she said:

“In a prepared statement Friday, Snowe called LePage’s remarks about Jackson ‘regrettable and inappropriate.’ She said the governor’s apology ‘was in everyone’s best interests’ so the Legislature can continue its work.

“Lucas Caron, a spokesman for Snowe, said he didn’t know whether Snowe and her husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan, would attend and co-host the fundraiser.”
