Jared Golden represents the Second District of Maine, most of the northern portion of the state, and serves on the Armed Services Committee and Small Business Committee.
Rep. Golden was endorsed by the Council for a Livable World during his successful and extremely tight 2018 Congressional race against a Republican incumbent. In his first year in Congress, he voted against building a new, low yield nuclear weapon for submarines, against building new medium range missiles non-compliant with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and for prohibiting U.S. military action against Iran without prior congressional approval.
He grew up in Leeds, a small town in Androscoggin County. After enlisting as an infantryman in the Marines, Golden deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan before returning home to Maine.
In 2020, he is likely to face a Republican candidate who ran for Senate in 2018.
