Maine's 2nd District Race
Bruce Poliquin succeeded in his bid to re-enter the Maine political scene on Tuesday. WGME-TV reports he defeated his opponent Elizabeth Caruso with just over 60% of the votes. In November, Bruce Poliquin will take on the man who defeated him in 2018, Jared Golden.

Corinth Alcohol Sales
Corinth residents have voted to end the town's run as a dry town. Results are still unofficial and it appears to have been a close race. But early indications are that Corinth residents have voted to allow the sale of alcohol, within the town limits, Monday through Saturday. This opens up a new sales avenue for businesses and restaurants, alike.
Cumberland County District Attorney's Office
Cumberland County's District Attorney race has received a lot of attention for out-of-state campaign contributions. WGME-TV reports most of that money came from an out-of-state PAC largely funded by multi-billionaire George Soros, donated to the campaign of Jackie Sartoris, who faced off against the current DA Jonathan Sahrbeck. The final results reveal Jackie Sartoris as the winner of the Democratic party primary. There is no candidate for the Republican party.
