Merletti declared his candidacy as a write-in candidate after losing in the Republican caucus. Due to party rules, only 20 people participated in the caucus. Merletti has argued that the caucus was not representative of the true sentiment of Republican voters. The state party chairman argues that Merletti is a fringe candidate upset about his defeat. In either case, dividing Republican votes could prove favorable for Democratic candidate [[Deanna House]].<ref>[http://new.bangordailynews.com/2011/02/17/opinion/was-district-11-hopeful-%E2%80%98boxed-out%E2%80%99-or-did-he-just-lose/?ref=relatedBox '''Bangor Daily News, Maine Opinion'' "GOP rift puts special election in doubt," February 17, 2011]</ref>
