Gov. Janet Mills Announces Support From Maine Republican Lawmakers Heading Into Debate

Latest News

Ahead of tonight’s debate, Gov. Janet Mills’ campaign announced a coalition of current and former GOP lawmakers crossing the aisle to support her reelection.

This bipartisan support comes after Independent U.S. Sen. Angus King endorsed Gov. Mills yesterday.

Citing her strong bipartisan leadership, Republican State Senator Kim Rosen; former Republican State Senators Roger Katz, Pat Flood, Joyce Maker, Chris Rector, and Karl Turner; former Republican State Representative Meredith Strang Burgess; and former Mayor of Bangor and Calais John Cashwell are all supporting Gov. Mills over former Republican Gov. Paul LePage.

Rosen, Katz, and Cashwell all appear in a new tv ad for Gov. Mills — “Mainers, Not Complainers.”

“Tantrums, distractions, fighting — it’s just bad behavior that costs Maine,” they say. “Janet Mills, she brings people together. She doesn’t care whose idea it is so long as it’s good for Maine.”

Watch the ad here.

“Gov. Janet Mills has worked across the aisle to pass inflation relief checks, expand health care, and fully fund public schools for the first time in Maine history,” said DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy. “As Gov. Mills builds more bipartisan support, Mainers — no matter their party — are seeing through Paul LePage’s divisiveness.”
