Pingree declines to run for governor


US Representative Chellie Pingree said she will not be running for governor. The Democrat representing Maine’s First Congressional District told the Portland Press Herald on Friday that she has given it a lot of thought and she is very happy serving in the House. So far, Governor Paul LePage, a Republican, has filed paperwork to seek reelection and independent Eliot Cutler is on board to seek a rematch with LePage, whom he almost beat in 2010. And Steve Woods, who ran for Senate as an independent, is now running for governor as a Democrat.
