They're calling it "RCV" (which it is, i guess), but of course, what Maine is doing is IRV and not Condorcet.
But this old canard of a challenge needs to be pushed

At one time in my life, I was a resident of Maine.  30 years ago.  When George Mitchell was senator.  Sad to see what it's becoming.

Thanks, Robert. I think we can all celebrate the election of the Condorcet
candidate in the Maine CD2 election. Also, the addition of Tiffany Bond to
the race, who said she wouldn't have run without IRV/RCV, gave voters a
more interesting set of voices and choices to choose from.
