Democrats hold on to Augusta, but majority votes red Downeast

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

All but one member of central and eastern Washington County’s Augusta delegation will be a Republican, following the midterm elections held Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Anne Perry, a longtime Democratic representative from Calais, narrowly defeated Republican challenger John Chambers, with 51.52 percent of the vote. Following last year’s redistricting, in January, Perry will represent the new House District 9, which stretches from Eastport to Grand Lake Stream along the county’s eastern edge.
