On November 4, fourteen independent candidates were elected to state legislatures.
Two were elected to State Senates: Harri Anne Smith in Alabama, and Edward O’Neill in Rhode Island. Both were incumbents running for re-election.
Twelve were elected to lower houses:
Alaska: Dan Ortiz of Ketchikan
Georgia: incumbent Rusty Kidd
Maine: incumbents Joseph Brooks, James Campbell, Ben Chipman, and Jeffrey Evangelos
Rhode Island: Blake Filippi
Vermont: Alyson Eastman, Barbara S. Murphy, Paul Poirier, Adam Greshin, and Laura Sibilia.
As already posted, eight Progressives were elected in Vermont, so that makes a total of 22 minor party and independent candidates elected to state legislatures this year.
Only 218 independent candidates ran for state legislative seats in November 2014, so 6.4% of them were elected.
