The Maine Green Independent Party has some exciting things to show on its front page this morning. Yesterday was the deadline for Green Party candidates to file their campaigns to run for Congress. Maine has three seats in Congress in play for this year’s election – one U.S. Senate seat and two seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
This morning, the Maine Green Independent Party is showing the image you see below, featuring congressional candidate Ursula Rozum. Exciting, huh?
There is a minor obstacle the Maine Green Independent Party will need to overcome if it is to elect Ursula Rozum to a seat in Congress: Ursula Rozum is not a candidate for U.S. Congress.
There is an Ursula Rozum for Congress campaign website, but that site represents a 2012 congressional campaign, not a candidacy in the current election cycle. Even back in 2012, Rozum was running for Congress in Central New York, not in Maine.
The Maine Green Independent Party has been unable to find a single candidate to run for Congress this year. The deadline has passed. If you’re a Green in Maine and you want to campaign for a seat in Congress, you’ll have to wait until 2016.
