PORTLAND, Maine — State Senate President Justin Alfond is opposed by a pair of familiar faces in his campaign for a fourth two-year term.
The Senate District 27 Democrat is challenged by Republican Peter Doyle and Green Independent Asher Platts. Doyle ran unsuccessfully against Alfond in 2010; Alfond defeated Platts in 2012.
“I have enjoyed being Senate president, it is a fascinating role to play,” said Alfond, 39.
