Poliquin to Attend Speech, Pingree Will Not

Congressman Bruce Poliquin has indicated that he will attend the speech of Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, our closest Allie in the Middle East.  Poliquin stated his support in the following quote, “I will be in attendance and I’m looking forward to joining my colleagues in welcoming the Prime Minister to our House chamber. I believe that this reception presents a great opportunity for Americans to extend our support to one of our strongest allies, especially given the intense geopolitical climate of the Middle East today. Israel faces a countless number of threats on a continuing basis. I look forward to hearing the Prime Minister’s speech and continuing our nations’ strong and dependable relationship.”

Representative Chellie Pingree has indicated she will boycott the Prime Minister of Israel.
