As a strong Democrat and John Baldacci supporter, I am very excited that Maine Republicans chose Chandler Woodcock for their nominee. It’s clear the far right wing has taken over the Maine Republican Party, since the Maine GOP chose a Bush Republican as their nominee.
Woodcock is too conservative for Maine. He is completely against a woman’s right to choose and has hinted that he would push legislation on that issue. Woodcock supported Michael Heath in 2005 supporting the legal discrimination that Mainers strongly rejected last November.
So thank you to the far right of the Maine GOP. They’ve chosen a candidate who does not fit with mainstream Maine values.
