When I met Reagan Paul, I couldn’t believe she was 23! Not because she doesn’t look young, but because of all she has accomplished in just over two decades of life, and the mature way she thinks and carries on a conversation.

Like the president she is named after, Reagan loves this country. If you ask her why she believes what she believes, get ready, because she is going to blow your socks off with lots of information as well as passionate conviction. Whether you agree with everything she does or not, you can’t help but respect this young woman.

Reagan is what we are looking for in the next generation: strong, independent, sincere, someone who genuinely cares about the future of our state and the welfare of its citizens. Join me in voting for Reagan Paul in November. She will make history as the youngest woman to be elected into the Maine State House.
