It may not be the compelling campaign slogan in Maine political history, but you can’t fault First-District Republican congressional candidate Mark Holbrook for his directness.

“If we want to make this country safe and great again and take the state of Maine forward, close your eyes, hold your nose, do whatever you need to do, but let’s unify around the candidates to get Trump across the finish line and get me across the finish line,” Holbrook said at a pig roast in Newcastle on Saturday, according to the Lincoln County News.

Holbrook, known for his extreme views and harsh rhetoric, is making an appeal for party unity after winning a close Republican primary.
