Interview: Dean comes second in Maine Caucuses

Print More

Hoping to grab some momentum away from frontrunner Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, Howard Dean campaigned in Maine on Saturday – but results of Sunday’s caucus voting show that Kerry won that contest with nearly 50 percent of the vote. Dean picked up about 26 percent and Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich came in third.

Dean is now in Wisconsin, where he’ll stay through the February 17 primary – a contest the campaign has described as make or break for any hopes of Dean becoming the Democratic presidential nominee. Mitch Wertlieb talks with Fred Bever of Maine Public Radio about Sunday’s caucus results.
