Portland Maine’s very liberal mayor, Ethan Strimling has lost reelection via rank choice, final results not in but he conceded about 10 pm. We are waiting for the final tabulation to confirm the first place finisher finished first. Somehow Portland will end up with the best option for mayor.
Just as I posted it was confirmed that Kate Synder will be our new Mayor. She was the least liberal of all 4 of our candidates.
