ME-02: Jared Golden (D) vs. Dale Crafts (R)

Jared Golden promised Maine voters he’d operate above partisan politics, but the second he got to D.C. he fell in line with Nancy Pelosi and Washington Democrats, voting for their impeachment sham, backing socialized, government-run health care that will bankrupt rural hospitals and failing to stand up for Mainers. Despite President Trump winning this district by 10 points in 2016, Jared Golden has gone out of his way to obstruct the president, voting against President Trump’s initiatives 87.5% of the time.

Dale Crafts has lived the American Dream by overcoming personal tragedy and creating several small businesses that have employed hundreds of Maine residents. Crafts’ commitment to working with President Trump to enact pro-growth policies for Mainers presents a stark contrast with Jared Golden’s record of obstruction and absolute loyalty to Washington Democrats.

PVI: R+2

2016 Presidential Results: Trump 51.4% – 41.4%
