The election for the 2014 Maine governor is still almost 20 months away, but the names of who may run are adding up to what could be an exciting election season. The latest name to show interest in running is U.S.Rep.Mike Michaud.He acknowledged this week that he is considering a run for governor in 2014.He is one of several names that have been mentioned as a potential Democratic challenger to Governor Paul LePage. Former Governor John Baldacci and U.S.Rep. Chellie Pingree are also mentioned as possible Democratic challengers.

Independent candidate Eliot Cutler, who finished second in the 2010 election, has formed a campaign committee for 2014 and filed the necessary paperwork with the Maine Ethics Commission.

The Public Policy Polling survey released in February found that Michaud trailed both Baldacci and Pingree on Mainers’ list of preferred candidates. Also, a three-way race with Governor LePage, Mike Michaud and Eliot Cutler, showed Gov. LePage leading with 34%, Michaud at 30% and Cutler at 26%.

It looks like we’ll have plenty of campaign ads to look forward to!
