RE: Save the Date --> April 19th
Didn't the LePage budget increase spending. And Poliquins record on reducing spending at the federal level hasn't exactly been reducing either

Islander, yes, LePage has increased spending and grown government.

As far as Poliquin, he has made some disappointing votes. One of the most recent,

House vote 1

INTERVENING IN UKRAINE: The House has passed a bill, sponsored by Rep. Eliot L. Engel, D-New York, calling on President Barack Obama to provide lethal military aid to Ukraine’s government in its operations against separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Engel said the conflict in Ukraine “poses the greatest threat to European security since World War II,” making it imperative that the U.S. act promptly to combat the danger of Russia occupying and dominating Ukraine, with resulting harm to U.S. interests and a peaceful, democratic Europe.

The vote was 348 yeas to 48 nays. Both Reps. Chellie Pingree, D-1st District, and Bruce Poliquin, R-2nd District, were among the yeas.

RE: Save the Date --> April 19th in Lewiston
There are certainly a number of people with valid concerns/questions for both Governor LePage and Congressman Poliquin, but that's part of the reason why I'm glad they have agreed to speak at this year's rally... plus we should have some additional surprises for folks to enjoy.
