Election 2020 - Jay Allen - Candidate: U.S. Congress District #1

Republican Jay Allen said he decided to run for Congress when he watched the Democratic presidential debates.

"I did not like the direction they were planning to lead the country," Allen said.

He is the Republican nominee seeking the U.S. House seat that represents Maine's First District, which covers southern Maine, including Knox County. He is challenging Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree of North Haven.

Allen said he decided someone had to stop the Democrats, and since he took an oath to the defend the U.S. Constitution while he served 23 years in the Army as a doctor, he decided to do what he could to "uphold that oath and do what I can can to bring a voice of reason to Washington, D.C."
