Timeline

2019

In September 2019, Brakey announced his candidacy for Maine's second district of the United States House of Representatives against incumbent Democrat Jared Golden. Brakey earned early endorsements from several Republicans in Maine's state legislature as well as endorsements from conservative organizations such as Club for Growth and FreedomWorks.

2018

Brakey was the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in 2018, losing to incumbent Senator Angus King with 35% of the vote in a 3-way race.

2017

In 2017, Brakey sponsored legislation to increase access to birth control by making it easier for persons with "an outdated birth control prescription to get the medication as long as certain conditions are met."

In April 2017, Brakey announced his intention to run for U.S. Senate in 2018 against incumbent independent Senator Angus King, who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate. During the campaign, Brakey sought to appeal to both Trump supporters and to libertarians. King was favored throughout the race, and defeated Brakey by a wide margin in the November election. King received 344,575 votes (54%); Brakey received 223,502 votes (35%), and Democratic nominee Zak Ringelstein received 66,268 votes (10%).

2016

In 2016, as Senate Chairman for the Health and Human Services Committee, Brakey negotiated welfare reform legislation, which banned the use of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds on purchases of tobacco, liquor, gambling materials, lottery tickets, bail, firearms, vacations, adult entertainment, and tattoos. To enforce this prohibition, penalties for making prohibited welfare purchases include required restitution for intentional violations and suspensions of benefits ranging from up to three months on the first offense and up to 24 months of suspended benefits on third and subsequent offenses.

Brakey, as chair for the Health and Human Services Committee, was the lead Senate sponsor of state "right to try" legislation in 2016, which guarantees terminally ill patients the right to use investigational drugs, treatments and medical devices that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The legislation passed the Maine House and Senate and was signed into law by Governor Paul LePage signed the legislation on March 30, 2016, making Maine the 25th state in the nation (and the first in New England) to pass right-to-try legislation.

Brakey initially declined to say who he voted for in the 2016 presidential election, saying only that he did not vote for Hillary Clinton. In April 2018, however, Brakey tweeted saying he "proudly voted for Donald Trump and the foreign policy he advocated."

At the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Brakey represented Maine on the National Platform Committee. Brakey sponsored several amendments to the platform that were successfully adopted, including a measure that declared support for "Right To Try" legislation, which would allow terminally ill patients to try investigational medicines not approved by the FDA, as well as measures supporting an audit of the Pentagon, the abolishment of the IRS and development of thorium nuclear power. Brakey also sponsored several amendments that were voted down, including a measure that would have declared support for medical marijuana, and another measure that would have condemned U.S. military intervention in Libya and called the "deposing of secular dictators in the Middle East" a "failed policy" that should be ended.

2015

The American Conservative Union ranked Brakey's voting record as the most conservative in the Maine Senate in 2015 2016, and 2017.

In 2015, Brakey sponsored legislation that eliminated Maine's requirement to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm "for legal gun owners who are age 21 or older, and for all military servicemen or servicewomen over 18 years old." The legislation won broad bipartisan support in the House and Senate and was signed into law by Governor Paul LePage. The legislation was supported by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Maine State Police, and opposed by Everytown for Gun Safety, the Maine Chiefs of Police Association, and the Maine Sheriffs' Association.

In 2015, Brakey introduced legislation to eliminate cash bail in Maine and replace it with a risk-assessment system that would allow defendants not determined to be a flight risk to be released pending trial. Brakey said that such a policy would save taxpayer funds and protect the civil liberties of defendants; Brakey noted that "about 69 percent of the inmates in Maine jails are those who have yet to go to trial and are unable to post bail."
