Jared Forrest Golden (born July 25, 1982) is a U.S. veteran and representative from Maine's second congressional district.

U.S. House of Representatives[edit]

2018 U.S. House election in Maine's 2nd district[edit]

Golden was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018, defeating then-incumbent Republican Bruce Poliquin.[1] While initially losing the general election to Poliquin by a margin of just over 2,000 votes, no candidate gained a majority, which triggered a ranked-choice runoff, that which Golden won by just under 3,000 votes.

Tenure[edit]

House impeachment coup against Donald Trump[edit]

Serving in a swing district, Golden voted for the first article of impeachment against Donald Trump but against the second one.[2]

Breaks from party far-leftists[edit]

Golden was the sole democrat to vote against the Farm Workforce Modernization Act which would give pathway to citizenship for some illegals.[3] He was also only one of two democrats who voted with Republicans to not encourage voter fraud.[4][5] He was the lone democrat to vote against the America Rescue Plan Act.[6]
