Just after the polls closed tonight, about 50 people gathered at Republican candidate Peter Mills’ headquarters on Preble Street in Portland.
Guests had their pick of about 35 bottles of red and white wine, gin, and more than a half dozen bottles of whiskey. They sampled a potpourri of homemade appetizers and desserts, and platters of vegetables and deli meats.
Stephanie Dunn, the communications director said Mills began his day at the polls at 6 a.m. in Scarborough. “He was shaking hands all day,” Dunn said. Supporters were still waiting for Mills to arrive at the party at 8:30 p.m.
Mill’s brother, Paul Mills stood in for him at an event in Farmington today. “People honestly get them confused,” she said. “I don’t know why. They don’t look alike.”
