Today marks the 1 year anniversary of Japan’s devastating earthquake and tsunami disasters.

PPH reporting that the site of President Obama’s planned March 30th fundraising reception in Maine has been moved to a larger venue because of a high demand for tickets.

The KJ has this story of how Maine’s 70 year old pension system for state employees may be facing some major changes in the next few years.

The story of GOP head Charlie Webster’s surviving a confidence vote at yesterday’s Maine Republican Party state committee meeting took on a new direction and life of its own, with many weighing in on the Bangor Daily News story in a lengthy comment thread. It is well worth a read and illustrates deep fissures among the party, both from the standpoint of long registered Republicans and of those on state and county committees.

The “As Maine Goes” live blog itself written by Waldo County GOP member Matt MacDonald was at first allowed by AMG’s Scott Fish, but late last night removed by Naran Row-Spaulding. She claimed that MacDonald contacted AMG and requested its removal. Dirigo Blue has confirmed this to be the case.

An open thread.
