Recounts Expected in 3 Maine Senate Races

AUGUSTA, Maine - Maine officials will do recounts in three tight races for spots in the state Senate.

The Maine secretary of state's office says that a recount has been requested in the race for Senate District 11, where Democrat Jonathan Fulford challenged incumbent Senate Republican Leader Michael Thibodeau. Unofficial results show Thibodeau winning by 115 votes.

A recount will also be done for Senate District 21. Unofficial results show Democrat Nathan Libby defeating Republican Patricia Gagne by 64 votes.

Another race that will get another look is Senate District 25, where Democrat Catherine Breen beat out Republican Cathleen Manchester by just 7 votes, according to unofficial results.

If the results of the recounts remain the same, Republicans will hold control of the Senate with 20 members, compared to 15 Democrats.
