LEWISTON, Maine (WABI) - The White House is not confirming whether President Joe Biden will visit Maine this week.

Gov. Janet Mills invited the president to come to Lewiston on Friday.

One of the reporters at the White House briefing on Tuesday asked if the president will be traveling to Maine.

“We are we are appreciative of the Governor of Maine inviting the president to to visit.

“As you know, when the president visits any state anywhere, there’s a lot of logistics that has to come into play. I don’t have anything to share on on a potential date, but certainly we are appreciative. And as you know, the Deputy Director of the Gun Prevention Office, Greg Jackson, as I mentioned, I believe yesterday, is on the ground providing support to the community,” said Karine Jea-Pierre, Whate House Press Secretary.

The governor has been in close contact with the president following the shootings.
