AUGUSTA — Maine Republicans are celebrating huge victories at the polls by winning the governorship and both houses of the Legislature, but say they’re humbled by voters’ action.

Amid hugs, high-fives and hurrahs Wednesday, GOP leaders gathered in the State House to mark their historic win. Besides electing the first Republican governor since 1990, voters have the GOP control of both the House and Senate for the first time since the early 1970s.

The Republicans have a 77-73 edge in the House, with three recounts pending, and a 20-14 edge in the Senate, with one recount possible.

Josh Tardy, the out-going Republican House floor leader from Newport, said his party is proud, elated and thrilled — but also humbled.

Latest unofficial results for the races for the Maine House of Representatives show Republican candidates have won in 43 and are leading in 30 districts.
