29 ‘Sanders Democrats’ Win in Maine Primaries, Advance To General Elections
The Sanders political revolution continues to spread throughout the Democratic Party, as 29 Sanders Democrats won their respective primaries for state government positions in Maine on Tuesday. Four first-time primary winners will be joining a field of 25 other candidates who either already hold state office or ran unopposed in their respective primaries, all of whom have previously endorsed Bernie Sanders.
Ben Chipman, who is currently a member of the Maine State House of Representatives, defeated two challengers, Charles Radis and Diane Russell, taking 53% of the vote. Chipman will not run for re-election, choosing to face off against Republican Mark Lockman and Green Party candidate, Seth Baker, for the Maine State Senate 27th District seat.
Justin Chenette, also currently serving in the Maine State House of Representatives, will forego reelection to the House and try and win the 31st State Senate District seat after defeating Barry Hobbins with 56% of the vote. Chenette will run against Republican William Gombar in the general election to decide who will win the seat.
