The Hill reports:
GOP Sen. Susan Collins, who is locked in a close reelection race with Democrat Sara Gideon, warned on Tuesday that it could take a week to determine who won the Maine Senate race if no candidate gets an outright majority on election night.
“If neither of us gets 50 percent of the vote, then we get into the rather odd ranked choice voting. …We probably would not know for certain who won for another week,” Collins told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
Collins said she is “hoping” to get 50 percent on election night, adding “that would be the best of all worlds.”
