He had, however, written a nice poem conceding his defeat:
SENATE CANDIDATE DODGE: A concession verse
“Bested by Angus, Not that outrageous, A well-loved man, With a bi-partisan plan.
Fought the good-fight, For what was right, My head held high, Critics can try
Ran for right reasons, Liberty for all seasons, Happy to See, Some with me
An independent future, Democracy grows mature, Maine leads the way, A great place to be gay
No regrets never, The message we delivered, It was my pleasure, To follow that endeavor.”
He thinks he probably has come fourth – and polled the highest vote ever for a Libertarian Party candidate in Maine.
He also tells me that he is now putting his earing back in.
(The race was won by the Independent candidate, Angus King: the former Governor)
