Cynthia Dill in Maine Senate Race: The Peculiar Reasons The Democratic Party is Ignoring Her

It is time for me to tell you a bit more about the happenings in the Maine U.S. Senate race. Just when I thought it could not get any more surreal, there is a storm brewing between now and the election (and I am not referring to Hurricane Sandy that is bearing down on New England from the South). 

The Democratic candidate Cynthia Dill decided it was prudent to hold a press conference on Friday. Was it to announce her endorsement by Obama and Biden? Well no, the national Democratic Party is still ignoring her. She had this press conference to tell her fellow Democrats that voting for her is something they should not be afraid of. No really, this is how it was reported.” But she held her ground, telling voters they should not be afraid of vote-splitting.” She also claimed there was no “deal” being considered to have her drop out.
