Tuesday, Maine voters went to the polls. There were no statewide races to decide, but local elections in Portland, Lewiston and elsewhere offered some noteworthy results.

On this week's edition of Maine's Political Pulse, Keith Shortall spoke with Maine Public's Mal Leary and Steve Mistler about what those results mean and about the most recent entry into the U.S. Senate race, Democrat Ross LaJeunesse.

This week, host Irwin Gratz speaks with statehouse bureau chief Steve Mistler and chief political correspondent Mal Leary about the race for Maine’s 2nd District seat. It was one the seats that Democrats flipped in the 2018 Congressional election when Jared Golden narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Bruce Poliquin. Another close race is possible coming up as more Republican's have entered the race.
