AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine election officials say a recount has upheld Democrat Anne Graham of North Yarmouth as the winner in House District 109.

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap says Monday’s recount determined that 2,140 votes were cast for Graham and 2,104 for Republican Gary Foster, of Gray. The results leave Republicans with 78 seats to the Democrats’ 72, with one independent, in the Maine House.

Two candidate recounts have now been completed. There are four candidate recounts and one statewide ballot question recount remaining to be completed.
