Republican Eric Brakey came out with a new video showing off dance moves.
A video of Brakey dancing in a Speedo swimsuit for a Vita Coco Coconut Water ad went viral in 2013, and his campaign said the new video pokes fun at that after others have used it to mock him.
The new video, featuring Brakey dancing on the steps of the Maine Statehouse and in a tree, among other places, was accompanied by a message that said “we’re punching back” at those who’re trying to silence Brakey by mocking his swimsuit dance.
“Eric is a new kind of leader. He never takes himself too seriously, but he ALWAYS puts the freedom of Maine People first,” the message said.
Both candidates face an uphill battle against King, who has reported a $2.3 million campaign war chest through March. Ringelstein reported $29,610, while Brakey reported $84,813.
