Report: Maine Gov. LePage May Not Run For A Second Term

After the Maine legislature overrode his veto of a state budget bill, Republican Gov. Paul LePage told reporters Wednesday that he may not seek a second term.

He also ruled out a congressional run, a move he had been floating around last week.

“I am going to be meeting with my family at some point and we are going to be talking it over,” LePage said, according to the Sun Journal. “Quite frankly, I don’t know how you recover from this. I really don’t know how you recover from a tax increase. This is a giant obstacle. It’s like having a giant hole in the bottom of your ship and you are trying to get across the pond.”
