Hello from Maine. We caucaused today!

I live in Augusta, the state capitol. The turnout was way lower than 2008, about 60 people in all. We, of course, voted to re-elect President Obama. We heard from one of the Senate candidates and surrogates from the other 2, as well as for Chellie Pingree. I'll be a delegate to the state convention and I was selected as the recording secretary of the city Democratic committee. I had an opportunity to speak briefly on how well President Obama has done and how horrible little ricky santorum would be. I was very impressed with our candidate for DA of Kennebec and Somerset county and see her as a potential future candidate for Governor or Senator.

All in all, a pretty good day.

That was just my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that.

PEACE!

5. Thank you, aaaaaa5a, but...

...I have no idea why more like me are needed.

I believe that sometimes my almost 12 year old son wishes there were 1 less of me.

PEACE!

9. I'm a delegate from the 2nd district, Mike Michaud country. Had a similar experience. Decent.

Not a bad turnout in my town near Bangor given it is an uncontested prez race. The Bangor breakfast with Michaud, the Senate candidates, the DNC members, etc. was very good. Our caucus had more Dems than the RePukes had, and there are many more registered RePukes in our town than Dems. Candidate petitions were signed, clean elections checks given, and good volunteer signups. So all in all not too shabby.

10. Nice to hear.

We're in Chellie Pingree's district. We had a healthy discussion of issues and candidates.

Where are you leaning on the Senate primary? I liked everything that Jon Hinck had to say but I don't know if he has the strengh to go up against olympia. I like both Dill and Dunlap. I guess I'll listen to all 3 at the state convention and make up my mind then.

PEACE!
