CAIN LAUNCHES BID FOR CD2 SEAT
In her announcement Cain said that securing the economic future of the Second Congressional District is her reason for entering the race. Cain’s priority is to continue creating good-paying jobs across Maine.
“During my nine years in the Legislature I have fought to protect and create jobs, make college more affordable, increase accountability in government, and support Maine workers and their families. I will take those same priorities with me when I go to Washington.”
Cain has a track record of working across party lines to benefit Mainers.
“I believe government exists to make sure everyone is treated fairly and has a chance to succeed,” Cain said. “I believe it is the responsibility of our elected leaders to work together to create opportunity and make sure the playing field is level for hard-working Maine people.”
“Congress is broken. The way we fix it is by electing people who know how to get things done – even when partisan tensions run high,” Cain said. “I have the experience to make sure that happens.”
Cain has filed paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission and is taking deliberate steps to establish a formal campaign organization. An official campaign launch will be planned for later this year.
