Embattled Maine Gov. Paul R. LePage said Thursday he will not run for Congress in the 2nd District, according to local reports.
Earlier this month, Democratic Rep. Michael H. Michaud launched an exploratory committee to challenge LePage for governor in in 2014. If Michaud officially enters the governorâ€™s race, the 2nd District would be open in 2014.
LePage, a Republican, told reporters last week that he was considering running for Michaudâ€™s seat, after a difficult week in the state capital.
â€œIâ€™m considering running for Mike Michaudâ€™s seat if you want to know the truth because it canâ€™t be any worse in Washington than it is here,â€ LePage told reporters last week.
