Betsy Sweet, Clean Elections Democratic Candidate for Governor



I'm a different kind of candidate.

Let’s get one thing out of the way right now: If you’re happy with the same old, same old in Maine politics there are other choices for you. But, if you’re looking for something different, take a look because I’m a different kind of candidate. Maine is full of smart, kind, hard working people. It's time they had a government that listens to them.

An Ethical Leader

I reject special interest money. I am a Clean Elections Candidate. My loyalty is only to the people of Maine, not big donors, corporate PACs or wealthy lobbyists. I fight for and win real progressive victories.


Courage to Get the Job Done

As Governor, I’ll fight for: Universal healthcare for every Mainer • Jobs that pay enough • Not one more penny on dirty energy for Maine • Tuition for Maine students in exchange for community service.


Small Business Owner and Advocate.

I work hard and I love the work I do. I have two businesses. I work two jobs. I have represented the voices of Maine people as an advocate at the legislature for decades.


My Favorite Title is Mom

Being a single mom with two jobs taught me a lot of great skills—and forced me to always remember what’s most important: caring about each other, working hard, and always getting the job done.


Winning Back
The Hearts of Mainers

For a Democrat to win in 2018, We must do more than have a good set of policies. We must also speak to the hearts of voters. We must go beyond the labels, slick talking points and name calling to talk with people and meet them where they are. The reality of our day to day lives has to matter. That’s what I do. That’s who I am. That’s why I can win the Blaine House back for the Democrats in 2018
