MS Campaign Records 1975-1996 8 boxes

Arranged chronologically according to the two campaigns Cohen waged while he was in the Senate, and then alphabetically within each campaign. In 1984, Cohen was re-elected to the Senate with 74 percent of the vote in a victory over Elizabeth Mitchell, the majority leader of the Maine House of Representatives. In 1990, Cohen won a third term in the Senate with 62 percent of the vote in a decisive victory over Neil Rolde, an eight-term legislator in the Maine House of Representatives.

Files from Cohen's 1984 and 1990 campaigns consist of memos, newsletters, position papers, special interest group profiles, reports on voter attitudes, and speeches. Information about his 1984 opponent Elizabeth Mitchell is also included here in the form of reports from the Mitchell Senate campaign, newsclips, and roll calls. A small group of files compiled for use in Cohen's anticipated 1996 campaign is also in this subseries, and it includes letters written to Cohen by his constituents expressing appreciation for his assistance.

Access to records in this sub series is restricted. Details will be included in the sub-series level descriptions when they are added to this inventory. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
