Maine Beacon: The Rabid ‘Reopen’ Radicalization of Maine Republicans

This week on the Beacon podcast, Esther, Ben and Mike discuss the change in tone from Maine Republicans, as they now push for re-opened restaurants and tourism from Massachusetts. They also survey the differences in pandemic response and results between Maine and our closest Canadian neighbors in New Brunswick.

Also: An allegation of sexual assault against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden puts progressives in a difficult place.
