Maine: Heath Joins Race and Drops Out, All In Two Weeks

Michael Heath’s candidacy was exceptionally short, but interesting nonetheless. Heath is the former head of the Maine Family Policy Council, a socially conservative organization in that state.

WCSH-TV said he issued a statement Wednesday saying he quickly determined that it’s not realistic for him to circulate the necessary petitions.Independent candidates have until June 1 to collect at least 4,000 voters’ signatures each to qualify for the November ballot.

Five Democrats and seven Republicans are competing in their parties’ June 8 primaries for the gubernatorial nomination.

Heath’s entrance into, and exit from the, gubernatorial race in Maine only took two weeks total.

    Aren’t there other independent candidates in Maine? And probably a green Party candidate since it’s one of their best states?

  3. And then there is Doctor Jill Stein, a Green type with a staff of experienced, seasoned Obama Democrats! [Could not find any politicos of the non Democan or non Republicrat variety in the entire region ?????????]

    Stein is in Mass, not Maine.

    And shouldn’t “Constitution Party Socialist” preface his/her remarks by either thanking IPR for a great Constitution Party story (even though it’s not actually a Constitution Party story), suggesting that the former candidate in question run as a Constitution Party candidate, or both?

    As well as then following up that remark with 3-20 comments about unrelated Constitution Party stories elsewhere?
