Maine Democrat Triumphant in Special Election
Victory Continues Trend of 2016 Cycle Successes
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post lauded tonight’s Democratic special election win in the Maine state Senate. On Tuesday, Maine Democrat Susan Deschambault won the special election in Senate District 32 with 57 percent of the vote. This victory comes on the heels of a series of special election successes in Kentucky and strong Democratic performances in competitive regions in last fall’s legislative general elections in Virginia and New Jersey.
“Congratulations to Senator-elect Deschambault on her victory in tonight’s special election,” said Post. “This latest win continues a clear pattern of Democratic successes that will continue into the fall – not just in state legislative elections, but all the way to the top of the ballot. Voters in Maine and across the country want government that reflects the American ideals of opportunity and freedom, and when voters bring those demands to the ballot box, Democrats win.
