Trey Stewart Withdraws from Senate Race, Presque Isle, Maine
Senator Harold “Trey” Stewart posted on his Facebook page Thursday, August 19 that he will withdraw from the state senate race saying he is doing it “out of deference to my friend and mentor” Congressman Bruce Poliquin who is running for the Senate.
Stewart said he had been talking with people in his campaign, family and friends and after “soul searching” for a couple of weeks made the decision. He said it was the responsible choice to make for the 2022 election and wished Poliquin his best and gave him his support in “beating Jared Golden.”
Stewart said the decision was not an easy one and thanked his supporters who worked on his campaign and those that contributed financially to his run.
Senator Stewart said he is 27-years-old and “not going anywhere” and will continue to work for Maine’s future.
