Golden folds to Pelosi

Jared Golden just folded faster than a cheap suit.

Literally 24 hours after putting on a big show and threatening to vote against Pelosi’s $3.5 trillion plan, Golden caved and voted for it anyway.

As a quick reminder: all 10 “moderates” said they wouldn’t advance the Pelosi spending plan unless the infrastructure bill passed the House first. And no – that didn’t happen.

American Action Network has run $700,000 of TV advertising in ME-02 urging Golden to stop the plan as part of a national issue advocacy campaign opposing Pelosi’s $3.5 trillion bill. (Watch the ads here and here and for more details see here)

“Jared Golden made it clear that he works for Nancy Pelosi, not his constituents,” said AAN Communications Director Calvin Moore. “Golden promised he would stop Pelosi’s socialist wish list in its tracks, then broke his word and voted for it less than 24 hours later. If Golden cares at all about his integrity, then he needs to do the right thing and vote no on Pelosi’s plan when it returns again for a full vote.”
