Maine Beacon: Collins Accidentally Airs Ad Supporting Gideon

Esther, Ben and Mike discuss new advertising in Maine’s U.S. Senate race, including an aggressive ad from the Lincoln project, an incredibly defensive commercial from Collins on campaign contributions and and ad that her campaign released online that many have pointed out should probably be considered an in-kind campaign contribution to her opponent, Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon.

They also cover the results of a new poll from Colby College.

Also: As the Senate debates a coronavirus relief package, funding for unemployment benefits, virus testing, state governments and food stamps have been left out, but a tax deduction for business lunches has been doubled.

Plus: Portland is seeing a surge of activism and organizing as the City Hall encampment continues and five progressive referenda have made the ballot.
