In ME-02 incumbent Democrat Mike Michaud is, of course, running for governor of Maine: so his seat is now open. And after last night’s results, I think that it may end up being considered more competitive than Lean Democratic. As of 10:30 AM today, Democrat Emily Cain has only gotten about 800 more votes than Republican Bruce Poliquin did; and turnout was noticeably higher on the Republican side than the Democratic one. Both candidates are unabashedly partisan; but you’d expect that the Democrats would have done better with GOTV on a seat that they’re currently holding.
Keep an eye on this race. Bruce Poliquin’s site is here.
