1/ A Mary Mayhew thread
The new deputy administrator at CMS overseeing the Medicaid and CHIP programs leaves behind her a trail of devastation in Maine from her tenure at Maine's Dept of Health and Human Services #mepolitics mainepublic.org/#stream/0
Mayhew bitterly opposed Medicaid expansion, in defiance of all the experts and members of the public health community. She even vowed to repeal the voter-approved law if elected governor #mepolitics mecep.org/mary-mayhews-m…

Too many really lovely people hoping for their partner, child, parent, etc to be the person they could be if that partner, child, parent, etc if they only changed, which of course they have no desire and/or resources to do.
Maybe you think of yourself as an independent, moderate, etc, and really don't love either party (but probably like one party less) - you can select me as your first choice, and still have the back up of another candidate if not enough people agree with you. #mepolitics
In this race, folks who like Bruce probably don't like Jared, folks who prefer Jared probably aren't keen on Bruce.
A lot of folks would like (or find less annoying) someone who really isn't a party. With RCV, you can do that! It removes the risk of vote-splitting.
The way my head works may never be gratifying or specific in the ways @ASFried is looking for. I think it may one day work for @CollinsWatch, though I would imagine I would have much less exciting material than Susan.
