AUGUSTA — The Democratic incumbent in House District 57 in Augusta is withdrawing from her re-election bid to devote her energy to running for district attorney in Kennebec and Somerset counties.

As a member of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Maeghan Maloney shepherded legislation to establish the first Veterans’ Treatment Court in Maine. She says she looks forward to seeing it fully implemented and that she hopes to put her full legal background to work as state prosecutor.

She was unopposed in Tuesday’s primary.

Republican Andrew Worcester beat Michael Hein in the GOP primary for House 57.
