Pingree Heading Back to the Swamp of D.C.

11/7/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

Resister Rep. Chellie Pingree won re-election Tuesday night, and when she returns to the Swamp of D.C., her party will be in the majority.

Rep. Pingree took a leisurely stroll to another term Representing Maine’s 1st Congressional District.

As of early Wednesday morning, the Democrat had received 58% of the vote. Maine-first candidate, Republican Mark Holbrook was sitting at about 33%. Meanwhile, the “independent” Martin Grohman only tallied about 9%.

Pingree held large majorities in most of the major cities in the district, including Portland — whereas Holbrook was more competitive in smaller towns.
