AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Shenna Bellows is ready for some shoe leather politicking.

The Democrat who wants to unseat Republican Sen. Susan Collins is holding a news conference Friday to talk about her plans to walk across Maine. She plans to visit 63 locales as she walks 350 miles.

Bellows says she intends to be a voice for the working class and her trek is being dubbed "Walk with Maine for Jobs and the Economy." Bellows was executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine before choosing to run for the Senate.
