Wild two weeks!

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind.  With over 50 town and county GOP caucuses all across Maine, I’ve had the opportunity to meet thousands of voters. I’m also pleased to have won several straw polls recently, including Lincoln County, Kennebunk/Wells, and Northern Penobscot County. Here are just a few pictures from the road:
The reality of the schedule and Maine’s geography is that I’ve not been able to be at every single caucus to address the crowds personally. Luckily, we’ve had a great team of surrogates out there. I’d like to say thank you to the following people for speaking on my behalf:

Rep. Jeff Pierce, Rep. Paul Chace, Rep. Stedman Seavey, Former Maine Commissioner of Labor Jeanne Paquette, Eric Lusk, Rep. Jon Kinney, Rep. Lester Ordway, Rep. Deb Sanderson, Tyler Lamensky, Roger Ek, Joe Marshall, Nancy Colwell, Rep. Dick Campbell, Sen. Jim Hamper, Karen Lockwood, Rep. Phyllis Ginzler, Rep. Richard Malaby, Stephen Drapeau, and JC and Kaylene Miller.

Thank you all for your loyalty to Team Mayhew!

I’ve sent some videos of my remarks the last few weeks, so to change it up this week, here is a clip from Rep. Deb Sanderson’s supportive remarks at the Kennebec County GOP Caucus two weeks ago:
If you didn’t get a chance to check out the first Republican debate at Colby College last Monday, here’s a link to the live stream:

Colby Debate 2.26.18

During the debate, I was asked about my vision for the future of Maine’s workforce. You can see my full answer here.
Over the last 9 months, I’ve really enjoyed talking with a range of hardworking Mainers that earn a living on the coast, so I was very excited to join Rep. Jeff Pierce on Friday at the Maine Fisherman’s Forum in Rockland. We met a lot of great people and enjoyed an excellent seafood dinner!
Despite the busy caucus schedule, we’ve managed to continue our grassroots presence across the state with some great meet and greets hosted by our Team Mayhew supporters.
We started out last week with a Monday morning meet and greet event hosted by John Fortier and Charlie Guance. Charlie and John were great supporters of Governor LePage on both of his campaigns and I’m glad to have their support!
The prior Thursday, conservative stalwart and local business owner Linc Merrill hosted a great meet and greet at his new Patriot Insurance facility in Yarmouth. Linc is the current Chairman of the Christian Civic League of Maine Board as well as Chairman of the Maine State Housing Authority Board.

The political events are great, but my hands-down favorite part of the last couple weeks was Chance’s 18th birthday party at our house in China last week.

Now that he is 18, I took him to register to vote the next day,  I’m proud of you, son.

Over the last two weeks, we’ve also hosted volunteer nights in Bristol, Falmouth, Damariscotta, Auburn, and Hampden.
