Democrat Scott Cuddy of Winterport has won reelection over challenger Jessica "Jess" Connor of Searsport by a margin of just 55 votes.

Cuddy said during the campaign that he wants to continue to work on lowering property taxes so residents can afford to own their own homes. He supports investing in renewable energy as a way to create more jobs and address climate change.

Connor told The Republican Journal that she hoped to win the seat so she could bring voices to the Legislature that are not being heard during Gov. Mills' Democratic administration. Instead of shying away from political discussion, she hoped to see people embrace it again to increase understanding.
