Maine: “Court denies Poliquin’s appeal to stop Golden’s certification as winner”

Portland Press Herald:

The 1st Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling is the latest blow to Rep. Bruce Poliquin’s battle against ranked-choice voting.

A panel of federal judges Friday rejected Rep. Bruce Poliquin’s request for an emergency injunction to block Maine from certifying Jared Golden as the winner of the state’s 2nd District race.

In a one-sentence order, three judges on the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston ruled that the request doesn’t show Poliquin “to have a strong likelihood of success on the merits.”
