Maine Democratic Chair Drew Gattine, issued the following statement:

“For decades, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree has been a stalwart champion of the Maine people – first as a State Senator and for the past fourteen years as our representative in the first congressional district. It’s no surprise to see Mainers once again overwhelmingly selected her as their representative in Washington D.C. In Congress she’s delivered real results for Maine families, farmers, fisherman, and workers. In her eighth term, I have no doubt that she will continue to build on her impeccable track record of success. Congratulations once again Congresswoman Pingree.”
