DCCC Chairman Steve Israel Announces Emily Cain Named to Red to Blue Program

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel issued the following statement announcing that Emily Cain, the Democratic nominee in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, has been named to the DCCC’s Red to Blue program.

“Maine voters are already embracing Emily Cain and her plan to boost Maine’s economy and stand up for middle class families, while her Tea Party opponent is a close ally of Governor Paul LePage – and far outside the mainstream,” Chairman Israel said. “Emily’s proven record of fighting for Maine’s seniors, women and families, and the strong campaign she has put together, have earned her a spot on the DCCC’s competitive Red to Blue program. I am confident that in November voters will elect Emily Cain to follow in the footsteps of Democrats who have represented this district for nearly two decades.”
