Maine governor considering a run for Congress

Also apologizes for recent crude, critical remarks

PORTLAND, Maine — Governor Paul LePage said Friday he is considering running for Congress in 2014, instead of seeking a second term as Maine’s governor.

LePage, a Republican, told reporters that he may run for the Second Congressional District seat now held by Representative Mike Michaud, a Democrat. Michaud, who is in his sixth term in Congress, announced last week that he has formed an exploratory committee for a possible run for governor against LePage.
