Dale Crafts issued the following on the results of the election.
“Running for Congress in Maine's Second Congressional district has been an amazing experience. For the past 15 months, I've enjoyed traveling over 50k miles, crisscrossing the state from Lewiston to Lubec, Fort Kent to Farmington, Brooks to Brewer. I have witnessed firsthand the resiliency that all Mainers have, the struggles they wade in, and the difficult times that they always seem to overcome. Maine is filled with some of the hardest working, honest, innovative, and thoughtful people I have ever met and I am honored to have this opportunity.
“I congratulated Jared this morning and told him that I'd be praying for him, our state and our nation’s future. My biggest hope is that we can all come together at the end of this election season and remember that we are all Americans and when united, we are strong. We all should strive to do the right thing, and not seek politically motivated opportunity, because in the end, we are a nation of small communities of family, friends and neighbors knit together as one.
“Thank you Maine!”
