Earle McCormick has won a primary election to run as the Republican nominee to represent Hallowell, Manchester, and West Gardiner in the Maine House of Representatives next year, according to unofficial results from Tuesday’s primary elections.

McCormick, 75, a veteran lawmaker from West Gardiner, will run against Rep. Charlotte Warren, a Hallowell Democrat who currently represents House District 84.

McCormick won the Republican primary Tuesday. He previously served 12 years in the Legislature.

The other candidate in that primary was Jeremy Pare, 40, a professor of political science and business management at Thomas College.

McCormick won in a 549-265 vote, taking a wide lead in Hallowell and West Gardiner, according to unofficial results. The respective vote totals in those two communities were 131-38 and 303-58. But Pare did receive a majority of support in his own town, Manchester, 169-115.
