Trump calls for Throwing Brakey out of GOP

March 27, 2020

BANGOR, ME – Adrienne Bennett, Republican U.S. Congressional Candidate (ME-2), released the following in response to a Tweet by President Donald J. Trump:

In a Tweet released this morning, President Trump called for U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie to be thrown out of the Republican Party. Candidate Eric Brakey has taken the exact same position as Massie, the one that led to President Trump’s Tweet. Brakey said if he were in Congress, he would take the same action that President Trump has denounced.

According to the Lewiston Sun Journal: “Brakey said his position on the relief package meshes well with U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican who opposes the bill and may force his colleagues to return to Washington to cast votes on it this weekend. He detests it so much that if he held the seat now, he said he would force congressional leaders to call House members back to Capitol Hill to cast a yes or no vote on the bill rather than allowing it to proceed on a voice vote that requires the presence of only a few leaders.”

Bennett, who stands with President Donald Trump and U.S. Senator Collins on the need to act immediately to provide aid to American families said, “Mainers stand with President Trump and they want to elect a leader that stands with our President in this time of crisis. The choice is clear for Maine Republicans.”

“Now is not the time for political grandstanding, now is the time for swift action to help American families,” Bennett said. “I do not agree with everything in the relief package but I agree with President Trump that Americans need help now, and we don’t have time for political games.”

Bennett’s statement is in stark contrast to her opponent for the Republican nomination for Congress, Eric Brakey, who called President Trump’s relief package “a rotten deal,” and vowed that he would stand with U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie.
