Maine congressman loses seat in controversial ranked-choice voting race

Friday 18:12 GMT

Democrat Jared Golden defeated incumbent GOP Rep. Bruce Poliquin after votes have been counted in Maine's controversial ranked-choice voting system, according to election officials.

MAINE REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN SUES OVER 'FLAWED' RANKED-CHOICE VOTING SYSTEMS AS BALLOTS ARE STILL COUNTED. “Instead of respecting this important constitutional principle, the RCV Act directly contravenes it by denying individuals who obtained the highest number of votes after the first round of balloting – in this case, Bruce Poliquin – from being declared the winner of the general election,” the suit claims.

California congressman says Trump 'needs to listen to the experts' on fires

Monday 17:15 GMT

A top Democrat from California said President Donald Trump “needs to listen to the experts” when it comes to the wildfires ravaging the state because there is no simple solution. While in California Saturday, Trump suggested the United States address forest management in a way similar to Finland, which the president claimed spends “a lot of time on raking and cleaning” the forests.

Trump traveled to California this weekend to survey wildfire damage in Paradise and Malibu, meeting with California Gov. Jerry Brown and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who will replace Brown as governor on Jan. 7, as well as FEMA Administrator Brock Long and local officials responding to the emergency.

Trump blasts congressman as ‘Little Adam Schitt’

Monday 23:40 GMT

“So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!,”

The Trump White House has defended Whitaker’s appointment, saying his “acting” status means he doesn’t require Senate confirmation. Whitaker didn’t require Senate confirmation for his previous job – Sessions’ chief of staff, but he got Senate approval when he was named US attorney in Iowa in 2004.
