13. She had enough signatures to place her name on the ballot...
but she dropped out of the race the day before the filing deadline. From following the news, I gather that Connie was having a major problem developing support from within the district itself and was relying on donations via ActBlue. This worked as long as Stupak was in the news but when he announced he wasn't going to run for re-election and faded into the background, the donations dried up. having worked as a volunteer in Stupak's previous campaigns, I imagine Connie was well aware of the costs involved in running a viable campaign.
