Conservative 99% dupes support 1% candidate for U.S. Senate

Maine State Treasurer Poliquin worked for the 1% in CT and NY managing pension funds (check his resume) and now he wants to represent them in the U.S. Senate.

Naive state legislators -- like mine, Phil Curtis, and perhaps yours -- think this will be good for their constituents in Maine. Nothing could be further from the truth -- but maybe it's their own campaign coffers they are thinking of?

Scroll all the way down to see Poliquin's bogus claims. Then join me in writing a truth-filled letter to the editor today.

Dear Patriot,
Our campaign for U.S. Senate is moving faster and faster every day!

Last week, Utah Senator Mike Lee endorsed me with an announcement to his national network of conservative supporters.

Earlier today, eight fiscally conservative state legislators from across Maine also endorsed my campaign:

Representative David C. Burns (R-Whiting)
Representative Phillip A. Curtis (R-Madison)
Representative Larry C. Dunphy (R-Embden)
Representative Jeffery A. Gifford (R-Lincoln)
Representative Peter B. Johnson (R-Greenville)
Representative Mel Newendyke (R-Litchfield)
Representative Beth A. O'Connor (R-Berwick)
Representative Deborah J. Sanderson (R-Chelsea)
Rep. David Burns from Washington County said "I am pleased to support Bruce Poliquin in his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.  Since coming to know Bruce in 2010, I have been impressed with his strong conservative values and the tenaciousness with which he works for this State and our citizens.  I believe that Treasurer Poliquin would be a very dynamic member of the U.S. Senate from the very beginning and would truly represent well the interest of all Mainers."

Rep. Peter Johnson from Piscataquis County stated "I am excited to endorse Bruce Poliquin’s candidacy for the U.S. Senate.  He has been a great Treasurer for the State of Maine.  His aggressive leadership on the boards of many quasi-government organizations, like the Maine State Housing Authority, has uncovering wasteful spending and potentially illegal practices.  Bruce has proven that he has the ability, initiative, and toughness to uncover waste in complex government programs while withstanding criticism for doing what is right.  He will do the same as our next United States Senator from Maine.”
Rep. Beth O'Connor from York County commented "It is a pleasure and an honor to support Bruce Poliquin for U.S. Senate.  He has been strong on all fiscal issues regarding the State of Maine, and has put us on a much more secure financial footing.  Bruce is the most fiscally conservative candidate in the race for this open U.S. Senate seat.  With his tenacity and excellent grasp of the financial difficulties we face as a nation, I believe Treasurer Poliquin is the only candidate that can help restore fiscal sanity in Washington and safeguard the purse strings of the American people."

Every day, more state and national leaders believe that I am the Republican who can beat former governor Angus King in the general election.  I am honored to have their support, but am really depending on people like you to give our campaign the momentum necessary to win!

With three other U.S. Senate seats poised to shift Republican, the balance of power in Washington could very well hinge upon Maine's open seat. 
The financial crisis in Washington worsens.  This open U.S. Senate seat in Maine is a rare opportunity for you to help send to Washington a fiscal conservative with 35 years of private sector experience who is not a career politician.

Please help me join a growing group of fiscal reformers in Washington to address our nation's out-of-control spending, rising debt, and unaffordable entitlements  --  just like we've done in Maine.

Best regards,

 Occupy Mainers in Portland say: TAX THE RICH!
