BANGOR — The Trump campaign has opened new offices in Maine.
Trump Victory opened field offices in Bangor and Presque Isle on Friday and Saturday.
“The president has asked that, and actually directed that, the Republican Party build the largest grassroots campaign in American history. So we’re going into every corner of the country, making the case why President Trump deserves and has earned four more years from America,” Trump campaign Senior Advisor John Pence said.
Pence said Friday he and other members of Trump Victory opened an office in Presque Isle while Saturday was the grand opening for the new campaign office in Bangor
According to Dale Crafts, former state representative and current Republican nominee for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, the new Bangor office is a sign of the growing Republican movement in the area.
“People are excited,” he said. “I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm, going all over the large district of Maine, the 2nd District. People are really worried about their country. So when they can go to an office, pick up the flyers and signs and see what they can do, get on a call to get people to get up and vote.
“Oh yeah, that Bangor office is going to make a big difference,” Crafts said.
Pence said that currently Trump Victory is on pace to knock on more doors than they ever have before to draw up support for Trump’s reelection.
“We’re averaging 16,000 doors a week. That compares to 11,000 doors a week from 2016 around this time. It shows that is a growing Republican Party and we are more energized and enthused to reelect President Trump for four more years,” Pence said.
