Maine Sportsman's Group Endorses Courtney
09/24/2012 02:30 PM ET  

The largest hunting and fishing advocacy group in Maine is endorsing Republican Jon Courtney in the 1st Congressional District race, but isn't endorsing anybody in the 2nd District or Senate races.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ The Sportsman's Alliance of Maine interviewed Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud and his 2nd District Republican challenger, Kevin Raye, as well as Republican Charlie Summers and independent Angus King in the Senate race.

SAM Executive Director David Trahan said the alliance's board of directors decided that Michaud, Raye, Summers and King were all "friends'' of the alliance and decided to not give an endorsement in those races.

For the 1st District race, the board endorsed GOP candidate Jon Courtney, who is running against Democratic incumbent Chellie Pingree. Trahan said Pingree did not respond to the alliance's questionnaire.
