PORTLAND, Maine — Governor Paul LePage said Friday that 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.
When asked outside his State House office whether he thought crude comments he made Thursday about a Democratic legislator would hurt him in the 2014 gubernatorial election, LePage responded: ‘‘Who said I’m running?’’
