AUGUSTA, Maine - Democrats in the Maine House of Representatives have nominated their leaders for the upcoming session.
They chose Rep. Sara Gideon, of Freeport, as speaker of the house, Erin Herbig, of Belfast, as majority leader, and Lewiston Rep. Jared Golden as assistant majority leader.
Gideon says it will be a difficult session. “It is always a difficult thing to keep 77 people moving in the same direction. It takes conversations, it takes an understanding of all the ramifications of things.”
