Lori Fowle has defeated Richard Fournier 226-153 in the Democratic primary for House District 58, according to updated results.

Fowle will face incumbent Rep. Karen Foster, R-Augusta, in November.

House District 58 serves Vassalboro, Windsor and the northeast section of Augusta.

Fournier, 57, has cited as top priorities: assuring health insurance coverage, working to preserve unions and aiding people faced with losing their homes because they lost their jobs.

Fowle, 49, has said her prime goal is to improve education. She did not like the top-down approach to school consolidation, among other things. Fowle also wants to work to improve the economy as well as school funding and make sure there are jobs available for graduating college students.
