The voters of Readfield and Winthrop just elected me to the Maine House of Representatives with 2,915 votes or 59% of the votes cast. Scott Davis, who ran a positive campaign, finished with 2,057 votes.

I'm beside myself.

Surely, my father is dancing a jig in heaven. My mother wants pictures so she can brag about it at her nursing home in Milwaukee. My biological father is dancing a jig in Florida. My birth mother is cheering in Georgia.

I can't yet describe what it means to me. Now, my eyes won't stop raining.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Congratulations, Craig! Couldn't respond on your tennis blog, so here I am. Now the hard work comes, no? You'll be fantastic at your post, I just know it.

I'm happy for you. While not a constituent, I'm always happy when good people choose to serve and actually get elected.

It will be great to have a farmer that knows local Ag in Augusta.

Craig, what an amazing accomplishment and evolution. I discovered your blog during the 2008 election cycle and recall your increasing interest in the political arena. Watching your journey (especially via FB) has been exciting, and even though I'm on the other side of the country, was pulling for you! Congratulations!

Congratulations! Until I read an article in the KJ this a.m. I knew nothing about you except your awesome Vote Hickman signage. I live in Wayne and wasn't able to vote for you but I would have if I could have based on your signs alone! Now that I know a little more about you, I would have voted for you twice if I could have.
