Recount affirms Tucker as Democratic nominee in House District 50

By Beth Brogan, BDN Staff

BRUNSWICK, Maine — A recount affirmed Ralph Tucker’s 442-432 victory over Jacqueline Sartoris in the June 10 House District 50 Democratic primary, Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap said Wednesday.

The recount, held at the Department of Safety headquarters in Augusta, was requested by Sartoris.

Dunlap said the election was “expertly run” by Brunswick town clerk Fran Smith and her staff.

“Both candidates were gratified by the process and the expertise of state elections officials,” he said. “And, given the clear due diligence shown by Brunswick town election officials, the recount was very smooth with no surprises.”

The two candidates competed to replace Charlie Priest, who was prevented from running again due to term limits.

House District 50 includes a portion of Brunswick.
