AUGUSTA – Maine Republican Party Chair, Dr. Demi Kouzounas, issued the following statement regarding Rep. Jared Golden’s announcement that he will vote to impeach President Donald Trump:
“Simply put, Jared Golden is putting manufactured D.C. drama ahead of his own constituents. It’s clear that Golden has no interest in being the voice of a district that overwhelmingly voted for President Trump.
From day one of the impeachment sham, Jared has attempted to play both sides of the issue. Whether it was paying his constituents lip service when he cast a critical vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry, or hiding from Mainers who demanded to know where he stood during the hearings, or ‘splitting his vote’ to impeach the President, the lack of leadership from Jared Golden is astounding. Regardless of how the one-term Congressman attempts to sell you on his political games, make no mistake, Jared Golden is voting to IMPEACH our President.
Today Jared Golden showed his true colors. While he has spent his political career attempting to convince Mainers he is a moderate and a ‘straight-shooter,’ he has proven he is nothing but an empty suit and a rubber stamp vote for Nancy Pelosi and D.C. Democrats.
In less than a year, Mainers will once again make their voice heard in the 2020 election, and unlike Jared Golden they won’t split their vote. They will re-elect Donald Trump and replace Jared Golden with a new member of Congress who represents them.” -Maine GOP Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas
