After the Republican caucus debacle last spring, Senate President Kevin Raye submitted LD 1882, An Act to Establish a Presidential Primary in the State. The bill was ultimately sent to the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee to hold a study meeting.
Raye said it didn't make sense to nominate candidates for lesser offices in Maine while relying on the flawed caucus system to select a candidate for the highest office in the land.
He's right; it makes no sense.
