(ONN) When Maine State Representative Elizabeth Dickerson announced she was resigning her seat and moving to Colorado last month, just ten days after taking office, a Special Election was announced to replace the Rockland Democrat.

July 14, 2014. Belfast, ME. (ONN) Back in April, we reported that the new Veterans Party was growing faster than any other political party in America. In just the first month of the party’s existence, it went from having 2 official state affiliates to having 43.

One of them is Blaine Richardson, running for US Congress in Maine’s 2nd District as an independent.
