Yesterday several states held primaries for House and Senate races. Common sense prevailed in Maine with Charlie Summers winning the GOP nomination for Maine’s First Congressional District.
Charlie is a real Republican with common sense solutions for some of our nation’s greatest challenges like healthcare and energy dependence. Charlie’s background in the armed forces as well as serving as State Senator gives him the experience and insight to be a great leader in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Charlie’s opponent was Dean Scontras who ran to the extreme right. He received the National Right to Life Endorsement. The results show how strong the moderate majority is in Maine: 59% Summers and 41% Scontras.
Charlie will face Democrat Chellie Pingree for the open seat in November. Though she will be a tough opponent, she is very liberal and the Summers Campaign knows that he more accurately reflects the people of Maine’s First District.
Senator Susan Collins who is a strong voice for the moderate majority in the U.S. Senate was also on the ballot. She faced no opposition. Representative Tom Allen won the Democratic nomination to challenge Collins. This will be a tough race for Collins but her record of common sense and the work she has done for the people of Maine will be tough for Allen to beat.
