“When people ask me why I’m running for president, I tell them it’s because government is too big, too bossy, too nosey, too intrusive,” Dr. Jorgensen said, adding that making campaign stops in Maine were a must.

“I was the one personally who said we have got to get up to Maine because they have ranked-choice voting,” she said.
