Independent candidates for governor, Congress and the Legislature were at the State House in Augusta Monday to compare notes on running as independents.
Several candidates pointed out that while they are all unenrolled, they don’t all agree on issues. But state Rep. Kent Ackley of Monmouth, who is seeking re-election, says they do share an overarching belief.
“One of the things the independents all agree on is that we should keep talking. And that is what is missing from Augusta,” he says.
