Republican U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin of Maine’s 2nd District has raised more than $2 million for his re-election campaign, well outpacing his opponents.

Reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission indicate that Poliquin, the sole Republican in the race, has raised nearly $2.2 million.

Gov. Paul LePage told Maine Calling that he has no plans to endorse any of the candidates vying to replace him when his term expires next year.

LePage was asked by the Maine Public call-in program host Jennifer Rooks if he will back Republican candidate Shawn Moody. Lauren LePage, the governor's daughter, is working for Moody's campaign, as are former members of LePage's campaigns, including his top political advisor.

Mainers will soon get an important glimpse at the financial support garnered for over two dozen candidates for governor. Midnight on Tuesday marks the deadline for the candidates to file campaign finance reports that will show who is donating to their campaigns and how much.

The reporting period covers the last half of 2017 and should provide some indication of how the candidates are resonating with individuals, businesses and interest groups.
