Now that the GOP will control Maine's legislature & the Blaine House, I'd like to see them change the name of the "Clean" Elections program to a name that more accurately describes it. Why not call it the "Publicly-funded" campaign program, or the "Taxpayer-funded" program, just to be completely honest? So-called "Clean" candidates are not necessarily superior to the ones that obtain their campaign money through private fundraising efforts, so why keep referring to them as such?
