Financial planner Max Linn’s (R) attorney “asked the state’s high court Monday to overturn a ruling by Maine’s secretary of state that disqualified him as a candidate in the June 12 Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

“The oral arguments before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court were the latest in a series of hearings, lawsuits and rulings that led to Linn’s disqualification after it was determined that signatures on his nomination petitions were invalid, including some from voters who are no longer alive. The court has until Wednesday to make a decision.” (Portland Press Herald)
