Youngest Candidate in Nation Seeking U.S. House of Representatives

For Immediate Release: May 12, 2014 Contact: Ben Trundy (207) 607-9981

Portland - Maine’s First Congressional district is setting up to be a David versus Goliath battle, as the youngest candidate in the nation seeks to unseat three term incumbent, Representative Chellie Pingree (D- Maine). Being married to a billionaire who owns Maine’s largest newspaper, Representative Pingree is not an easy Congresswoman to defeat. However, Isaac Misiuk, 25 of Gorham, has stepped up to the challenge.

“Two years ago when I entered college, if you would have asked me what my future might hold, running for congress against one of the wealthiest members would not have been a top priority,” said Isaac Misiuk. “For years, politicians have been going to Washington and claiming they work for their children and grandchildren. However, their policies prove just the opposite. Congress is happy with passing on the problems our nation faces today onto the future generations of America.”

Being 25, Isaac relates to Mainers, young and old. As a father and student, he has seen firsthand the troubles facing his generation and young families. He understands the crippling student debt and limited job prospects are hurting the American dream, which we are told to strive for as children.

“As I watch people my age get closer to graduation, closer to buying a home and closer to starting a family, I know that it is time that someone from my generation steps forward as a voice for our future,” said Isaac Misiuk. “We need to focus on bringing awareness to the younger generations about the implications of who they elect to Congress. My generation has inherited a fiscal mess that we had no hand in creating. When I am elected to Congress, I will stand up in Washington for future generations, ensuring that we always have a voice at the table.”

Isaac is a life-long Mainer and is currently on a hiatus from pursuing a Bachelors of Political Science from the University of Southern Maine. He resides in Gorham, is engaged and a father of one.

He's got the order of doing things wrong, but I hope he's willing to make good on that. Seems that most of the upcoming generation is kinda indifferent on that.

Good for him for taking on Goliath.

Kind of a mess. He is 25 has a kid out of wedlock, didn’t finish his degree....not exactly what I would want in a candidate. But since I am not in the district...I will wait to see what those folks say.

The premise of the movie was that a young rock star and his groupies managed to get a very young person elected to congress who introduced legislation to reduce the voting age to 14 and the qualifying ages for elected officers reduced, IIRC, to 18. The rock star is subsequently elected president and the baby boomers take charge forty years early; with predictable results I might add.

I was in Vietnam when the film was released so I am of that generation but never became radicalized because by the time I got to college I was already grown up with four years of military service behind me.

Now that was a blast from the past! In addition to generating a minor Top 40 hit single that is now a lost classic, this was one of the first performances by Richard Pryor. I vaguely remember renting this on videotape sometime in the late 1980s and would have been a great movie for the MST3000 crew to riff on.

Growing up my parents had a place in Maine and in the 80s, most girls had at least one or two kids before marriage, so it isn't out of the ordinary for having a kid before marriage.

It would be fun to see both Maine's CDs go Republican. It might along with 2 others in New England.
