Democrats won 79 seats in the Maine House on Tuesday, according to preliminary election results (including our own Jay McCreight, Denise Tepler and Jennifer DeChant). The victory gives Democrats control of the legislative body for the upcoming 127th Legislature (scroll down for a list of our winners in the House).

The final tally of 151 House members includes 68 Republicans and four unenrolled members who are expected to caucus with Democrats.

“The election is over. Now is the time to govern,” said House Speaker Mark Eves of North Berwick. “We are ready to work with the Governor and our Republican colleagues and remain strongly committed to standing up for seniors and middle class families.”

The Democratic majority in the House was won by the hard work of candidates, who fanned out across the state and whose positive message of economic opportunity resonated with voters.

“Our candidates won their campaigns one conversation at a time,” added Eves. “They listened and learned from their neighbors and committed themselves to making their voices heard in Augusta.”
