The key to victory in Maine is democrat who will come in third. We need her to take 25% from Queen Angus.
I think that Charlie Summers has shaved a few points of of Angus King’s lead. Incidentally, Summers also called on Todd Akin to drop his U.S. Senate bid in Missouri.
The more the merrier.
At some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, Akin's going to hit a wall and the realization that he destroyed his career and damaged his cause in a 30 second sound bite will hit. When it does, he will be a broken man and possibly unable to continue as a candidate. It's a crying shame he didn't do the right thing when he had a chance. He could have lived to fight another day. The Joe Paterno demise comes to mind-albeit not on the same scale.
Do you think there's a chance a write in campaign could succeed in MO?

Todd Akin can still drop out by September 25, but it will be more complicated. He will have to get a state judge to OK it and also pay the state to have his name removed from the ballot. I’m hoping he does this sooner rather than later.
He only needs one judge to approve it? Because I heard that of the 6 state judges, 4 are Dem and 2 are GOP.
It’s hard to know what could change in the next 4 days to cause him to change his mind. The facts are hitting him in the face like a two by four and he doesn’t blink.
A lot folk ‘out there’ in the country don’t even know Maine is in the United States, let alone where. That’s fine with us. Flatlanders stay home ;o)
HOWEVER - know this! in 2010, Republicans - for the first time on over 40 years - captured the Senate, the legislature and the best da*m governor in my lifetime ( and I’m a great grandmother.) He’s what most people think Chris Christy is - but he’s legit, not a RINO bone in him.
Now, running for Olympia’s seat we have Charlie Summers against Angus King -
Charlie is a great candidate with a perfect background: military, private business, government/financial experience,family man, VERY personable - quite good looking and looks much younger than he is.
He’s a charismatic speaker, gets down to the heart of matters, not just throwing out titles. UPbeat, generous but steadfast.
He’ll be a great senator.
So the media and the rest of the country can ignore Maine - the national weather reporting does to - ahahah - we can take care of this ourselves. The fewer people that find out what a great place Maine is, the better.
Too many flatlanders come up for a visit, love what they see and then move up here. First thing they want to do is turn in into where they came from - want to ‘educate’ us local yokels. (Flatlanders, aka, liberals.) They tend to gravitate to the ‘cities’ - like Portland and Bangor. They get on the city councils etc and set out to install their liberal causes. WE whipped ‘em good in 2010.
I say “cities” because most of you would skoff. Portland is our largest city, Bangor next, with populations of about 60,000 and 30,000.
May it never get much bigger.
One thing that ‘proects’ us is that Maine is not a ‘go through’ state. You don’t go thru’ Maine to get to any other state, so that cuts down on a lot of traffic and exposure. Amen to that.
Our short summers and long, hard winters protect us also - and will if TSHTF. People who can escape the big cities will head south.
Flatlanders, go south. Tea Party Conservatives, welcome mat is out.
First thin "Independent" King said when he threw his hat in was that he supports O'Bumbles...
Does he really have a shot to win?
A GOP candidate who served in the military? Wow! That’s pretty damn’d unusual...
You left out the fact that good real estate is inexpensive, if you agreeable to freezing half the year. Plus, for the folks who want to really get away they can peruse this guys listings: http://www.mooersrealty.com/ ...talk about remote!
