Republican Abden Simmons Wins Maine Special Election in Battleground District

Congratulations to Abden Simmons on bringing home a huge win!

Simmons wins the House District 45 special election held on Tuesday, June 13, 2023. He ran against Wendy Pieh, D-Bremen, to take over the remainder of the two-year term formerly held by Clinton Collamore, D-Waldoboro, who resigned in February. This is the Republicans' first legislative special election victory in a competitive area since 2015.

Maine Republican Party Chairman Joel Stetkis responds with the following:

"Congratulations to longtime Maine fisherman Abden Simmons on his election -- this is massive news for Maine. His deep community roots and staunch advocacy for this district's way of life clearly resonated with voters. We've said from the beginning that Maine Republicans are putting together a reinvigorated, bottom-up, grassroots team effort and I want to thank our volunteers and local party chairs because this was a great example of everyone working together for a common goal. Abden and the Republican team were great, but I'll also point out that Joe Biden, Janet Mills, Troy Jackson, and Rachel Talbot Ross have made consistent headlines in recent months for proposing and supporting far, far left-wing policies. Mainers in this battleground district today said ENOUGH. Enough of the spending increases, enough of the extreme left-wing agenda in Augusta, enough of the broken promises. And they picked Abden Simmons to deliver this message."

A commercial fisherman for decades and a lifelong resident of Waldoboro, Abden Simmons believes he has valuable experience to bring to Augusta. Simmons wants to keep Maine the way it is, conserve natural resources, and create or protect opportunities for vocational education and commercial fishermen.
