Independent for U.S. House Qualifies in Maine, for First Time Since 2006

Blaine Richardson has qualified for the Maine general election ballot, as an independent candidate for U.S. House, 2nd district. Also, Richard Murphy has qualified as an independent for U.S. House, 1st district. They are the first non-major party candidates to be on the Maine general election ballot for U.S. House since 2006.

Maine and Georgia were the only states with a Democratic-Republican monopoly for U.S. House during the entire period 2008 through 2012. Thanks to Tom MacMillan for this news.

    Richard Murphy, an independent, also qualified in the first congressional district.

    • Congratulations to both- both are also REAL Independents, not just party members running on their own like Angus King.

      Richard Murphy made it while running on a campaign of “I’m not asking for your money-just your vote”.

      I hope we see both Richardson and Murphy in Washington next year. The country needs them.
