Former Maine Republican Congressman Bruce Poliquin To Run For His Old Seat

August 4, 2021

Former U.S. Representative Bruce Poliquin (R-Maine) plans to run for his old seat again.

Poliquin represented the right-leaning Second Maine district in the central and northern portsions of the state from 2015 to 2019. He lost re-election in 2018 due to ranked-choice voting. He got more first place votes than Democrat Jared Golden, but lost on second and third place votes.

“I can’t watch this anymore. I can’t sit on the sidelines.” Poliquin said, according to WMTW 8. “We are in such big trouble in this country because Democrats are pushing this country so far to the left.”

Poliquin did not run in 2020.

Trump won the district in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. It’s a district that could help determine which party controls the U.S. House after the 2022 election.
