KITTERY, Maine (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Shenna Bellows has concluded her 350-mile trek across Maine by encouraging voters to elect a “working-class senator” who listens to them instead of listening to “corporate lobbyists and big business.”

The former executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine celebrated the end of a journey that took more than three weeks with events Tuesday in Portland and Kittery. Bellows began her walk last month in Houlton.

She has used the trek to introduce herself to voters as she seeks to unseat Republican Sen. Susan Collins this November.

Bellows follows in the footsteps of other candidates, like William Cohen, who have completed treks across Maine. Cohen walked 600 miles across the 2nd Congressional District when he ran for the seat in the 1972.
