Your Vote 2014 Profile: Troy Jackson
05/09/2014 Reported By:Jay Field  

Lots of politicians, in both parties, talk about lifting more Maine families out of poverty and into lives filled with steady work and reliable health care coverage. Many though, don't have Troy Jackson's intimate experience with what it means for families when those things are out of reach. Jackson, who's a logger by trade and the majority leader of the Maine Senate, is running against Emily Cain in the Democratic Primary in Maine's 2nd Congressional District. His campaign is the latest chapter in the career of an unlikely politician, known for his willingess to take on powerful opponents on behalf of Maine's most vulnerable citizens.

Emily Cain

Maine has a reputation for sending trail blazing female politicians to Washington. Two of those women, Republican Sens. Margaret Chase Smith and Olympia Snowe, first entered national politics by winning election to Maine's 2nd Congressional District. This fall, another promising female politician from Maine hopes to take this same route. In her 10 years in Augusta, Democratic state Sen. Emily Cain has risen quickly through the leadership ranks.

This year two well-known Maine Republicans are vying for the nomination to represent Maine's vast 2nd District in Congress. It's the seat currently held by Democrat Mike Michaud, who is running for governor. But former state Senate President Kevin Raye and former state Treasurer Bruce Poliquin have different styles, different priorities, and different reasons for entering the race. Poliquin says he's running so that he can help the next generation.
