Just the mention of the National Rifle Association on Saturday prompted the room in Miami into a roar. It was a fight that strategists saw as an upside: it calmed progressives’ furor over Kaine, seen in some circles as too moderate for a party still overcoming a passionate swoon with Bernie Sanders.

Then Maine became a political maverick, standing blissfully apart from the political trajectory of the rest of the country. As partisanship and gridlock overwhelmed legislatures across the country – most notably Congress – Maine built a reputation as a bastion of moderate politics.

A handful of unofficial Apple stores were picketed and social media users encouraged each other to destroy their Apple goods, in a rare instance of the tech firm being targeted as a symbol of perceived injustice following an international ruling against Chinese territorial claims.
