New Senate Blog

Al Diamon points out a new blog written by former Press Herald reporter Kevin Wack.

The Maine Race will focus on the US Senate contest from the perspective of an experienced Maine journalist newly unleashed upon the internet. Wack already has some interesting insights, including some thoughts about how southern Mainers are perceived up North. He's also looking to print the full responses from both candidates to the recent AP questionnaire.

I personally didn't find the AP Q&As very useful. If I wanted to read bland, buzzword-filled summaries of policy positions written by a candidate's staff, I would read the issues sections of their website. It would probably have been a lot more interesting to get live responses from the candidates.
