“That’s crazy numbers” — Maine Republican Party says they have contacted 2.7 million voters

At a “Get Out The Vote” event for the Maine Republican Party in Gorham Sunday, the party’s chair said enthusiasm is high for President Trump. “We know that our president hasn’t forgot about the state of Maine,” said Dr. Demi Kouzounas, the Chair of the Maine Republican Party. According to Kouzounas, the Maine Republican Party has made 2.7 million voter contacts, placed 2.2 million phone calls, and knocked on more than 500,000 doors this election cycle. “That’s crazy numbers,” said Kouzounas. “We call everybody.” Sunday about a dozen volunteers for the Maine Republican Party were in Gorham, contacting voters and making sure they are prepared to vote and know the basics about casting a ballot. Volunteers were reminding voters that the deadline to mail an absentee ballot has passed, and Mainers must bring them in-person to a town hall or to a polling place on Election Day. Kouzounas said that Republican voters have been asking about Senator Susan Collins, and whether or not she will support President Trump for re-election. “We always say she’s a fantastic republican and we wish that folks understand that she votes with the Republican Party 90% of the time,” said Kouzounas.Among the top issues cited by Kouzounas this year — lowering taxes and supporting small businesses — goals which she believes Trump has delivered on. “We are enthusiastic that will at least take CD2 which is the northern part of Maine,” said Kouzounas. “Hopefully he gets the whole state. We’re feeling great about that.”

“We always say she’s a fantastic republican and we wish that folks understand that she votes with the Republican Party [about] 90% of the time,” said Kouzounas.

Among the top issues cited by Kouzounas this year — lowering taxes and supporting small businesses — goals which she believes Trump has delivered on.
