Chellie Pingree Thanks Voters for Overwhelming Re-election Landslide


Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-ME) Has Won Again in District 1.

Congresswoman Chellie Pingree was re-elected for a seventh term to represent Maine’s First Congressional District in the US House of Representatives.  Following is her statement after speaking with her opponent Dr. Jay Allen last night:

“I am humbled and grateful that Mainers have entrusted me to represent them once more in Congress.  We have a titanic amount of hard work ahead of us.  Congress will act with urgency to send pandemic relief directly to thousands of Mainers and millions of Americans trying to survive the pandemic, defend Affordable Care Act under dire threat and combat the climate crises ravaging our planet.  From my seat on the House Appropriations Committee, my number one priority will remain providing more resources to Mainers fighting to survive this crisis and delivering federal funds to our state.  Holding this office is a sacred trust and I cannot wait to get started on the work ahead.”
