BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Democratic candidate for Congress in Maine says being a fighter is not enough in today’s political environment to deliver results in Washington.

In her speech at the state Democratic convention Saturday, the candidate, Emily Cain, emphasized the importance of working with both parties and negotiating.

Cain is a state senator from Orono. She’s seeking the Democratic nomination for the seat in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. The primary is June 10. She’s running against fellow state senator Troy Jackson.

Cain says her work negotiating budgets in Augusta shows her experience working with the other party.

Cain also used her speech to rally support for gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud (MEE’-shoh). She says it’s time for a new governor after four years of Gov. Paul LePage’s “bullying,” harmful policies and “embarrassing statements.”
