If they were black people storming the Capitol, they would have been shot.

The It meme posted above is awesome.

LePage, who was term-limited from running for reelection in 2018, filed on Thursday to challenge incumbent Gov. Janet Mills (D) in the state’s 2022 gubernatorial election.

Nope. Ranked choice voting specifically does not apply to state reps/senators or governor. It was challenged and then declared unconstitutional by the state supreme court because the Maine Constitution requires those offices be elected with a plurality. We only use ranked choice for federal offices and primaries.

LePage can still win the same way he did the first two times: a spoiler 3rd party candidate splitting the opposition. He has a lot of support, despite never being very popular, and he's running on "LePage 2.0" promising a "calmer and more issue-focused" version of himself... which dumbshit people will eat up.
