I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine.

The Unity State, which is also rich in oil reserves, borders northern Sudan, and is a potential flashpoint.
