Maine is divided on President Donald Trump and reactions to his winding State of the Union speech from the state’s congressional delegation were predictably muddled.

Max Linn has a colorful and controversial past across the political spectrum. Now, he says he’s running as a President Donald Trump-aligned U.S. Senate candidate in Maine.

Activists are up in arms over a bill that would bar petitioners from polling places and a massive crowd is expected at a hearing on the Legislature’s first day of 2018 tomorrow.
