Politico Story On Maine Leaves One Wondering: Why Dodge Andrew Ian?

Seriously. Anyone who’s paid attention in the blogs or at CPAC the last couple of years has met Andrew Ian Dodge. Which was why I saw a Politico bit on Olympia Snowe with this teaser:

Snowe has been at odds with Summers since he refused to endorse the 33-year Capitol Hill veteran over a prospective tea party challenger when she was still considering running for reelection.

Only. . .the Politico story wasn’t about Dodge, but someone I’d never heard of, Scott D’Amboise. Shock. Dismay. Blog post. Go get ’em, Ian!

Dodge for Senate

Alongside a superior job as a Senator, I’ve got a cup of coffee says he can make Harry Reid wet himself.

    Both Dodge and D’Amboise were non-starters, never breaking single digits.  The two other *competent* Conservatives, State Treasurer Poliquin and State Senator Plowman spilt the vote, allowing the moderate squish(And SecState) Summers to win, mainly on name recognition.

    Dodge has never really been taken seriously in this state.

    And all that *with* a state party taken over by PAUL-tards…

    NickLevi86… since I was not even in the Republican primary because I dropped out to run as a Libertarian (before Snowe dropped out of the race a week later) your statement is patently inaccurate. I am taken far more seriously than you might think. But we shall come November won’t we… can’t be that bad since I got the 4000 signatures to get on the November ballot. I am the only liberty-minded candidate in the US Senate race in Maine that is for sure.

     So long as Maine conservatives dont take Dodge seriously, the country’s conservatives won’t take Maine conservatives seriously.

    I contributed to Andrew and will do so again. I can’t vote, being out of state, but I can support him.
