Eric Lusk, Chairman of the Cumberland County Republican Committee, announced that Portland Republicans will hold a special caucus on Thursday, July 14 at 6 PM at The Portland Club to select a replacement for the Senate District 27 Republican nominee. The Portland Club is located on 156 State Street, Portland. Parking in rear.
In a recent letter to Maine's Secretary of State, Mark Lockman withdrew as the Republican nominee for Senate District 27. Lockman had won the nomination in an uncontested primary on June 14th.
