November's congressional election in Maine marked the first time in US history the ranked-choice voting system determined the outcome of a congressional race. The new state law mandates ranked-choice tabulation be applied in any federal race in which no candidate receives a majority of the vote.
Democratic Rep-elect Jared Golden was projected by CNN as the winner of the election in Maine's second district with 50.6% of the vote, and his opponent, Rep. Bruce Poliquin, received 49.4% of the vote.


"Not only are the Governor's comments wrong, this is yet another attempt by the Maine GOP to undermine the will of Mainers, who twice voted to approve RCV," Golden said in a statement released Friday. "Maine people are tired of this kind of poor leadership -- which is why they voted for sweeping change in November."

7. I recently read that right after leaving office he is leaving the state

And moving here to Florida! Damn it!

That is the reason Florida stays red...all the old, wealthy, white Northerners move here to retire.

Itís like we get a transfusion of hate every year!

The Villages are a cess pool of right wing politics.

8. Sore loser!

 

He sure didn't object to the Electoral College-only "victory" of one Donald J. Trump.

The difference here, is the voters of Maine agreed to this by public referendum.
