Political analysts Ethan Strimling and Phil Harriman discuss the CD2 Congressional race to replace Mike Michaud. With her recent endorsement by EMILY’s List and after having raised $67,000 in a matter of weeks, is Emily Cain the frontrunner? Plus, where are all the Republicans? Only one has shown public interest and August is merely days away.
Finally, Phil and Ethan discuss the new leader for Maine Republicans; Rick Bennett was elected the party’s chairman on Saturday. He replaces Richard Cebra, who was on the job for just six months before he resigned. What does Bennett’s election to the post mean to the GOP, as well as what role Governor Paul LePage and Tea Party members will have in the coming years?
