Maine GOPer CRUSHED in Maine State Sendate Special Election.
Advertisements [?]
In November, the Dem in Maine state sentate district 7 in Cumberland county won by just 75 votes. That incumbent recently resigned to take an out of state job. In the special election last night Cynthia Dill, the Dem, won with 68% in the special election to fill the seat. The Maine GOP threw in a pot of cash sending tons of mailers all over the district attacking the Dem. MAJOR FAIL. She even won her opponent's home town with 70%. Mainers are rejecting our TeaWhacko Governor and his party in a big way. This big win is a clear testament to that. And we are just getting warmed up. Wait until next year. God help the Maine GOP. We're gonna pound them to smithereens.
