The 2018 gubernatorial election is a no-brainer; Janet Mills is by far the best-qualified candidate, but she will lose if independent candidates muddy the waters as they did in 2010 and 2018.

Until we have ranked-choice voting for all offices, third-party candidates will continue condemning us to conservative Republican governors. This is just simple arithmetic.

Mills has a long record of defending Mainers against the reactionary obstructionism of Gov. Paul LePage and fellow conservatives. Let’s not repeat the naive mistakes of the last two elections.
