(WABI) - Bruce Poliquin of Orrington faced off against Liz Caruso of Caratunk to win the Republican nomination for Maine’s Second Congressional District.

Poliquin issued this statement following his Primary Election win Tuesday night:

“All Republican voters share the same concerns as Independents and disaffected Democrats: inflation is out of control, gas prices are too high, our borders are being overrun, and our economy is in jeopardy. Joe Biden’s policies are a disaster for Maine and America. Where has Jared Golden been? He has been nowhere in solving these problems. In fact, he has joined Nancy Pelosi in voting more than 80% of the time for these failed policies. We need a change and that is what I will bring to Washington.”

Caruso released this statement in part:

“I called Bruce Poliquin just now to congratulate him on winning the Republican nomination. Campaigns are tough, but at the end of the day, we are all Republicans, and it’s time for all of us to get behind our nominee. I will be working hard to make sure Bruce wins this seat, and to make sure rural Maine’s voice continues to be heard.”

Congressman Jared Golden’s office offered this statement Wednesday saying:

“Like the vast majority of his constituents, Congressman Golden isn’t thinking about the November election right now. He remains focused on doing the work that the people of Maine’s Second District elected him to do.”

Poliquin will run against incumbent Democrat Jared Golden and Portland Independent Tiffany Bond in November.
