Maine’s toss-up 2nd District appears headed to a ranked-choice count
BANGOR, Maine — The toss-up race in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District appeared headed to a ranked-choice voting count early on Wednesday morning, with Assistant Maine House Majority Leader Jared Golden holding a slight lead over U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin.
Their campaign was the most expensive U.S. House race in Maine history, with the candidates and their allies spending more than $20 million on the race. As polls opened, the contest was expected to be a fulcrum over partisan control of the U.S. House of Representatives, but Democrats were projected to win the chamber on Tuesday without Golden’s help.
