BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Emily Cain told her supporters that she would go to Washington to fight for the middle class.
"I think it's time to say yes! it's time to say yes to a different kind of politics. We need more leaders and fewer fighters in Washington DC because when all you say is no, nothing gets done."
Cain gave her victory speech to an enthusiastic crowd gathered at the Holiday Inn in Bangor around 10:00 pm. Tuesday night.She said she would fight for issues such as equal pay for equal work and raising the minimum wage.
And she said she would bring her style of working across the aisle to get things done for Maine people.
"We need people who can bring people together and bring the voice of Maine people to the table and to stay there until they get the job done. As a member of congress I will be that voice for Maine people who often go unheard"
Cain outraised Troy Jackson by a margin of more than 2 to 1 in the primary race. She says she's looking forward to facing republican Bruce Poliquin and independent Blaine Richardson in the fall.
