I find Emily Cain's experiences in government, as a member and chair of the Appropriations Committee, as Senate chair of the Government Oversight Committee, her experience in Leadership, her ability to seek solutions and common ground, her willingness to work with the other side of the political aisle, her accountability to her constituency appealing to those of us who hope to move the country, to move America forward and reopen a glimmer of hope for the people of Northern Maine.

I am excited to support Emily Cain for Congress. She is smart, she is experienced and she is an incredibly hard worker. Most of all, though, I am supporting Emily because I know she will be an effective representative for Maine. Simply put, she knows how to get things done - and that is what we really need in Washington!

She is forceful and effective, and always a pleasure to work with. In Emily, Lewiston and the 2nd District will have someone who will fight for them every day, but do it in a way that breaks through the gridlock in Washington and solves America's biggest problems.

Having knocked on over 800 doors with Emily Cain in the 2012 campaign, I found Emily to be energetic, hardworking, and knowledgeable. While serving in the House of Representatives with Emily 2011-2012, she showed her excellent leadership skills time and time again in some often trying situations. Emily Cain will fight for Maine in DC and I fully support her in her bid for Congress.

It is my pleasure to offer my support to my friend and fellow legislator Emily Cain in her run to become the first woman elected to Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, Congressman Mike Michaud's current seat. Emily has always been a powerful voice for women’s rights and a strong leader during her tenure in both the House and Senate. As House Minority Leader she displayed extraordinary skill in working with her colleagues across the aisle. Emily is willing to compromise, think outside the box and has often succeeded in getting opposing sides to work together to achieve effective solutions. She’s got the right stuff and I know she’ll get the job done for Maine.

I've had a good opportunity to work closely with Emily and I've always
been impressed by how quickly she grasps a difficult problem and how her
first instinct is to find a practical rather than political solution. Her
time on the Appropriations Committee has given her a better comprehension
of how government and the economy works than most legislators can hope to
achieve.

Emily Cain is a great asset for Penobscot County, at the University of Maine, in the Maine House and Senate and locally. She has graciously attended events in my community from election caucuses to summer parades. Emily is a thoughtful, brilliant and engaging young woman. The Second Congressional District will be very fortunate to have her representing them in Washington.

I support Emily because of her state legislative experience and the knowledge that she will represent Maine's interests in Washington. She knows what it takes to help middle class America. Her work on the Appropriations Committee demonstrated her ability to work across the aisle in this effort. She has common sense and composure ----two qualities desperately needed in Washington!!!

Emily Cain is my choice to represent us in Congress from Maine’s 2nd District. She is savvy and smart. She has a proven track record of listening, working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle toward progressive policies, and calm leadership in the rough and tumble of the state legislature. She’ll have my vote in the primary in June and in the election next fall.

Emily has the experience and commitment to represent the people of the Second Congressional District in Washington. During her time in Augusta she has shown herself to be a problem solver who can move people beyond partisan politics, build consensus and find solutions. We need her doing the same in Washington.
