Senate Candidates Share Thoughts After 2020 Debate
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - After last night’s 2020 Senate Debate we asked each candidate how they thought the debate went. Here are their responses.
“I was pleased. I liked the questions. I thought they were very pertinent and important questions to consider. I think I had a good chance to address Maine voter directly and let them know what I stand for. If they want to rank me first in the rank choice voting they can show that they stand for those things to and they can make a safe choice with their second pick. I thought it went well,” Savage said.
“We really were so excited for this debate tonight and I am very happy to have had this chance to continue talking to the voters in Maine and everybody who lives in Maine in fact, um we’re thrilled to focus on the issues whether it’s healthcare or the cost of prescription drugs, tackling climate change, what’s happening for farmers or how we can think about recovering from COVID 19, both in terms of public health and the economy,” Gideon said.
“I thought we covered a lot of issues that really matter to the people of Northern and Eastern Maine and I was very pleased to be able to participate. There were a number of issues I wished we’d gotten into such as what we can do to help the economy of this region and I wished had a full discussion of taxes,” Collins said.
And Max Linn did not give his thoughts on the debate, but instead made this statement.
“I want to make a blockbuster announcement. That is, I want to announce the Maine Workers Ticket here in the second district. Which includes Donald Trump for President, Max Linn for U.S. Senator, and Jared Golden for Congress. I can assure the second district that we need to stop the sellout of our working men, women, and their families in Maine, in America, and in The County. The Maine Workers Ticket is what we need. Let’s fight together for a better Maine and a better America.”
