11/7/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,
Democrats now control both bodies of the Maine State Legislature as well as the Blaine House.
The donkeys took back control of the State Senate with ease Tuesday night.
Though many precincts are left unreported, as of early Wednesday morning, Democrats looked to have won at least 19 of the 35 State Senate seats.
Republicans didn’t fare any better in House races. Democrats entered the day with a three-seat edge over the GOP in the State House. However, many Republicans — some of whom were thought to be in safe districts — fell to defeat. In fact, with some reporting left to come in, it looks as though the Democrats may have won about 80 of Maine’s 151 House seats.
From looking at town-by-town results this election cycle compared to 2016, it doesn’t appear Democrats changed many voters. It looks more like Democrat voters in Maine were motivated and engaged to turnout and vote, whereas many Maine Republicans who did turn out last election cycle, stayed home in 2018.
Unfortunately, the far-Left Janet Mills also easily defeated moderate Republican Shawn Moody.
It appears the combination of a 70-30 spending advantage over Republicans thanks to the Candidate Welfare system and loads of PAC spending from special interest organizations, along with a Fake News media monopoly that unfairly covered many races and the efforts of George Soro’s Marxist Pedophile Authority (or so-called Maine People’s Alliance) was too much for the GOP to contend against.
With their trifecta in hand, Democrats have already targeted expanding Medicaid for the Young and Healthy as a top priority, and you can bet that is just the beginning.
