Liberal incumbent Darren Fisher has been re-elected in Dartmouth-Cole Harbour.

Cheers and applause greeted Fisher when he arrived at the Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club for his victory party.

He told reporters his team could feel a building momentum on the streets when out knocking on doors.

"We see a community that is thriving and growing and a community that is willing to help those that need help," he said. "But also proud, proud of the successes in this community."

"They're seeing stores open, they're seeing businesses come in, they're seeing clean tech, green energy. There's a real vibe."

One of Fisher's main priorities going forward will be to help bring national pharmacare to Canadians, but tonight he'll be celebrating with the 100 or so volunteers who worked on his campaign.

"I am extremely proud of this team, they deserve so much credit for this hard earned win."

Fisher was elected to Parliament in 2015 after serving as a councillor in Halifax Regional Municipality.

As of 1:30 a.m. with 196 of 198 polls reporting, Fisher has 23,371 votes, which is 45.40 per cent of the vote.

The NDP's Emma Norton has 13,963, the Conservatives' Jason Cole has 8,226, Green Party's Lil MacPherson has 5,020 and People's Party of Canada's Michelle Lindsay has 899.
