Maine's 2nd District Democratic primary will present voters with a choice between the starkly different approaches of a polished dealmaker from the district's most populous county and a plainspoken working-class advocate from a remote logging town.
Democratic candidate for Congress Troy Jackson says he won't back down to pressure from tea party Republicans if Maine sends him to Washington in November.
Maine Democrats gathered in Bangor on Friday to kick off their two-day convention focused on firing up voters to unseat Republican Gov. Paul LePage in November.
Former popular streetball player and Louisville reserve Troy Jackson was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel room on Sunday morning. He was 35.
He says his views have since evolved and he wishes he could take back that vote.
Jackson says he's the only candidate with deep Maine roots and the ability to relate to struggling workers.
