State attorney general backs Biden

Sep 15, 2020

Augusta — Attorney General Aaron Frey and other Maine law enforcement officials have endorsed Democrat Joseph Biden for president.

“Now more than ever, Maine’s law enforcement community needs a President with values that clearly reflect our strong commitment to justice,” Frey said in a news release. “President Trump has repeatedly abused his wealth and power to circumvent the rule of law, trample on the Constitution, and degrade the integrity of the executive office for his own political and financial gain.

"There is no question about it — our democracy is in crisis. We must elect a leader in Joe Biden who will fight relentlessly in the pursuit of justice and finally restore law and order to the highest office in the country — because the future of American law enforcement depends on it.”

Others in Maine law enforcement officials who have endorsed the Biden-Harris ticket are Sagadahoc Sheriff Joel Merry, District Attorney Meaghan Maloney (Kennebec, Somerset), District Attorney Andrew Robinson (Androscoggin, Franklin, Oxford) and former Oxford County Sheriff Jim Theriault.
