King Picks Bipartisan Campaign Team

"In a move that will keep them guessing in Washington," the Portland Press Herald reports Maine U.S. Senate candidate Angus King (I) "has named two new campaign aides: one a Democrat and one a Republican."

"It will be difficult for King to operate in the Senate without joining either the Democratic and Republican caucus, since the party caucuses make committee assignments. Many Democrats are hoping the socially liberal, but more fiscally conservative, former Maine independent governor joins the Democratic caucus. King supported George W. Bush in 2000, but Democrat John Kerry in 2004 and he is backed Barack Obama in 2008 and this year."
