Democrat Janet Mills to remain in office, beating GOP challenger Paul LePage
( Fox )
Fox News can now project that Democrat Janet Mills will remain the Governor of Maine. She beats GOP candidate and former Governor Paul LePage.
Mills, who became Maine’s first female governor, previously served as the state’s attorney general before securing her position in 2018.
LePage, the former mayor of Waterville, Maine, served two terms as governor beginning in 2011, before being ousted by Democrat incumbent Mills in the 2018 election.
The pair faced off in four debates this fall, sparring over crucial midterm issues like inflation, education, abortion and COVID-19.
"I have been there. I've done it once, I can do it again. I am the guy that's got a business background," LePage said touting his economic records as governor during the final debate.
