Democrats retake State Legislature in Decisive Win
Dems call it a victory for Maine’s middle class
AUGUSTA – Early morning preliminary Election Day results show a decisive victory for Maine Democrats in the State Senate and House. Democrats have won 19-13-1 in the State Senate and 89-57-4 in the Maine House.
"Maine Democrats have a lot to celebrate tonight, but this victory doesn’t belong to us, it belongs to Maine’s middle class," said Ben Grant, the Chairman of the Maine Democratic Party. "This election was about working Mainers standing up for themselves and saying enough. We heard them, we’ve got their back, and we’re ready to work."
Results are still pending in House District 41 and Senate Districts 17 and 28. Senate Democrats picked up key Republican seats in Senate District 3, 17, 22 and 32 and held ground in SD 6 and 20 .
“Our candidates and volunteers knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors from Kittery to Presque Isle,” said State Senator Justin Alfond, the assistant Democratic Leader. “We’ fielded an incredible group of candidates – doctors, social workers, small business owners and coaches not politicians or party bosses.”
The Maine House Democratic leader Emily Cain, who won her bid for State Senate District 30 after being termed out in the House, said Democrats, would restore balance in Augusta.
“For two years we’ve seen Governor LePage and this Republican allies push a partisan agenda that left our economy and the middle class behind,” said Cain. “Democrats are ready to get to work immediately on reasonable solutions that will strengthen the middle class, rebuild our economy, and get Maine people back to work. Tonight’s victory does not mean that our work is done, it means it’s just beginning.”Type the text here
