Former Maine Republican Party Vice Chairman Scott Kauffman:
The Maine GOP would like me to support a candidate who has openly called global warming a "hoax"...Remember, moderate bipartisan centrist that she is, Sen. Collins says that LePage has the "right message for the people of Maine."
Environmental protection is absolutely vital for Maine. And yet the GOP asks for my unity behind a candidate who has called for the closing of the Department of Environmental Protection.
Despite the ongoing disaster in the Gulf Coast, LePage is still in support of drilling for oil off our coast. How can I support a candidate who is willing to put two of our largest industries, fishing and tourism, at risk?
And to back up those words, she gave his campaign $750.
