Republican Gov. Paul R. LePage has shot his first ever endorsement ad for another Republican seeking election to federal office, Isaac Misiuk, who is running for Maine’s First Congressional District seat against incumbent Democrat U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree.
In the ad, LePage touts his own record reforming state government before strongly endorsing Misiuk, 25, of Gorham.
As Mainers, we can continue to move Maine forward, but we must see change in Washington, D.C.,” LePage says in the ad. “That is why I stand behind Isaac Misiuk for Maine’s First Congressional District.”
“I know Isaac will work to shrink the size of our federal government, cut irresponsible spending, reduce our national debt, and encourage job creation for a more prosperous economy for our kids and grand kids,” he says.
This is the first campaign video LePage has shot for a Republican candidate other than himself.
The ad is currently only an online video, and the Misiuk campaign has been tight-lipped about plans to go up on television.
Misiuk is the youngest candidate for Congress in the country.
I have met Issac. He is a great guy and he has a good head on his shoulders. Like every other American who struggles in this day and age, Issac just wants to see his new child grow up with the same chance for opportunity that he has. If I lived in District 1, I would vote for Issac Misiuk.
