King Warns Two Major Parties

The New York Times reports former Maine Gov. Angus King (I) has a warning for the national political parties that may flood his state with negative ads to derail his independent candidacy for the Senate: "I will take note of how I am treated in this campaign."

"That is not an idle threat from some quixotic candidate for the seat being vacated by Maine's famously moderate Republican, Olympia J. Snowe. It is a warning from the front-runner, a two-term independent governor who, because he refuses to say whom he would support for majority leader next year, may well decide which party controls an evenly divided Senate."
