Representative Poliquin responded to the shooting in Dallas, offering condolences and respect for law enforcement.


Maine’s 2nd District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, released the following statement:

It is absolutely devastating to hear the horrific news from Dallas last night,” said Congressman Poliquin. “Our officers across the Nation put themselves in harm's way every day to protect our communities and families. In this case, they put their lives on the line to protect our citizens' rights to exercise their free speech. This is truly a sad day in our Nation's history.

He went on to say,

I thank and commend all of the police officers here in Maine and across our county for making these sacrifices every single day to keep our families and communities safe.  We stand with you.”
