Rep. Poliquin tries to help Trump reach out to Democrats

Since being elected to represent Maine's second Congressional district, Rep. Bruce Poliquin has had a pretty low profile in the media, largely because he avoids taking public positions on most issues, including even if he supported Donald Trump's candidacy for president, or the North Woods National Monument designation in the heart of his district, or if he would vote to repeal the nation's internet privacy rules on ISPs (he did.)

So it was a bit surprising to have him surface in stories this week in the Boston Globe and Politico discussing President Trump's failed outreach to Congressional Democrats. The news: Poliquin has been acting as a go between trying to broker meetings between at least one moderate Democrat and White House officials. Details in my short piece in today's Portland Press Herald.
