MAINE, USA — Republican Sen. Susan Collins is endorsing former Republican Maine Gov. Paul LePage's 2022 run for governor.
LePage served as Maine governor from 2011 to 2019.
A pre-recorded message from Collins was shown at the Augusta Civic Center Wednesday during LePage's rally to officially launch his 2022 gubernatorial campaign.
“As Maine recovers from the pandemic, Paul is the best candidate to grow our economy,” Collins said in the minute-long video.
“Paul and I believe that Maine’s small businesses our the backbone of our economy,” Collins continued. “We must support our job creators and Maine’s hard-working families. Paul is a job creator, that’s his background, he’s done it before and he will do it again.”
