(WMTW) Freshman incumbent Democratic Rep. Jared Golden maintains a lead over Republican challenger Dale Crafts Wednesday for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

Golden did not hold a campaign event on Election Night and instead watched the results come in at his Lewiston headquarters.

“This race is all but over — we are up by 6 points, and as our opponent acknowledged earlier this evening, our numbers are looking good,” campaign manager Margaret Reynolds said. “We are still waiting on results from Bangor, which we expect will further grow our margin. However, it would be in poor form to declare victory before those results have been tabulated. We’re proud of the positive, honest campaign we ran and we’re grateful that Mainers saw it the same way.”

Crafts held an event with the Maine Republican Party in Lewiston. While Crafts admitted the results did not look good for him, he was not ready to concede. He said he would assess later Wednesday.
