Maine Sen. Susan Collins (R) is considering a run for governor

I was pleased to read this afternoon that Maine whack-a-doodle Governor Paul LePage is term limited and barred from seeking re-election in 2018. Great news.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins is considering another shot at the position having run unsuccessfully in 1994, losing to Angus King now her independent Senate colleague.

If successful, Collins would be the first female governor of Maine.

She is a moderate Republican who did not support Trump’s candidacy, nor did she support the president’s choice for education secretary Betsy DeVos. She also declared herself against White House-backed legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.

She has not made a final decision, but Maine could do worse and has, recently.
