AUGUSTA, Maine — For months politicians on both sides of the aisle have speculated that Republican Senator Susan Collins may have eyes on the Blaine House three years from now, when Gov. Paul LePage's second term comes to an end.

Maine Governor Paul LePage made another public appeal for bringing more electricity from Eastern Canada down into New England.

Republican Paul LePage has a slim lead over Democrat Mike Michaud in the Maine governor's race. That's according to the latest Pan Atlantic SMS Omnibus Poll, out today. The survey also shows independent candidate Eliot Cutler running nearly 20 points behind both candidates. Cutler's campaign dismissed the numbers, saying it's way too early in the political season to tell where things will end up in November. Both the LePage and Michaud campaigns, though, say the poll holds clues as to why their candidate will ultimately win.

  Each of the candidates for Maine Governor will have a chance to outline his plans for Maine. Democratic candidate Mike Michaud stepped to the podium where moderators Richard Barringer, professor emeritus in the Muskie School, and MPBN's Irwin Gratz, directed the discussion.

This talk was recorded March 21, 2014 at the Talbot Auditorium, Luther Bonney Hall, on the USM Portland Campus.
