AUGUSTA — A Maine House of Representatives district in Augusta that was left without a candidate from either party in the days after the June 12 primaries will soon get replacement candidates.

District 57 was left without candidates when both primary winners — Republican Andrew Worcester and Democratic incumbent Maeghan Maloney — withdrew their names.

The Augusta Republicans will hold a caucus next Monday, July 9, to choose a replacement for Worcester. Their caucus was delayed a week because of an election paperwork delay.

Meanwhile, two Republicans — state Rep. Patrick Flood of Winthrop and Ryan Wheaton of West Gardiner — have announced interest in replacing Sen. Earle McCormick in the race for McCormick’s Senate seat. McCormick, a Republican, also withdrew his candidacy.

The winner will face Democrat David Bustin of Hallowell.
