Notes:
Sen. Angus King (I), 74, was heavily favored in his bid for a second term and there were no surprises.  King defeated state Sen. Eric Brakey (R), a millennial who leans libertarian, having served as Maine state director of Ron Paul's 2012 presidential campaign, and Zak Ringelstein (D), a millennial who has worked as a public school teacher and CEO of an education business and is also a failed country music star

The three candidates engaged in a number of forums and televised debates.  All three candidates participated in a forum on homelesseness at Preble Street Soup Kitchen in Portland on Oct. 12.  There was a debate on WGAN radio in South Portland on Oct. 22 (+) and televised debates hosted by News
