At the sprawling Fryeburg fair on Saturday, politicians pressed the flesh among the prized livestock and midway rides on a sunny autumn day, although Collins was not among them.
There was a cardboard cutout of the president giving a thumbs-up and Trump t-shirts for sale at the Republican Party’s booth, but the sole Collins sign hung almost obscured.
Mike Hoyle, who was wearing a Trump 2020 hat, said he’s disappointed with the senator’s “namby pamby, safe, political answer” on impeachment.
“I’m kind of on the fence about Susan Collins,” added Hoyle, who voted for Collins in 2014. “A lot of Republicans feel she’s not really a Republican.”
