McCain-Palin Hunting For Votes (and Moose) In Maine

Picking up on my Frozen North post, Dan at Gay Patriot argues that the McCain-Palin ticket has a chance to pick up one electoral vote from Maine's Second Congressional District. (Maine, like Nebraska, assigns two electoral votes to the ticket that carries the state and one each to the ticket that carries each congressional district.) He notes helpfully that Maine's moose hunting season occurs this week and also October 13-18.
