Jim Boyle, a small business owner and environmental scientist, won the special election in Maine last night to become the representative of House District 27, helping Maine Democrats maintain their majority in the State House.
Working on behalf of the Maine Democratic Party’s independent expenditure, Convergence created a direct mail and digital advertising campaign that focused on Jim’s readiness to take on this new role and raised the urgency for voting in this special election. Critically, our campaign focused on voter education and encouraged voters to use absentee and in-person absentee voting. These new voting methods were decisive in a competitive, three-way race. Congratulations Rep. Boyle on your win!
