HARPSWELL, Maine (AP) - Maine tea party activist and former U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Ian Dodge has died. He was 46.

Dodge’s relatives say he died from colon cancer Friday at his home in Harpswell.

The Colby College graduate and Libertarian ran unsuccessfully in 2012 for the Senate seat being vacated by Olympia Snowe. Independent former Gov. Angus King won the election.

Dodge’s family posted a final statement by him on his website Sunday. He paid tribute to his wife, Kim, and thanked many people including editors and co-writers who worked with him on political, musical and creative projects.

Dodge included a link to a YouTube video in the statement. The video is of the song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” from the Monty Python movie “Life of Brian.”
