Sen. Angus S. King Jr.

Sen. Angus S. King Jr.

Sen. Angus S. King Jr. (I-Maine) was elected as an independent to the US Senate in 2012 filling the same seat once occupied by Edmund Muskie, George Mitchell, and Olympia Snowe. King also served two terms as the governor of Maine. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and earned his law degree from the University of Virginia. King considers himself a strong believer in the need for greater bipartisan dialogue and relationship building and is a proven consensus-builder who “calls ’em like he sees ’em,” putting civility and respect ahead of political ideology. After serving two terms as governor of Maine, he packed up his family in an RV and spent nearly six months circumnavigating the United States. His first book, Governor's Travels: How I Left Politics, Learned to Back Up a Bus, and Found America, detailed his trip. He has five children and lives in Brunswick, Maine, with his wife, Mary. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the Maine outdoors—either on his Harley or with his family in their camper.
