OUR last post on this topic was Creationism in Maine Governor’s Race. We reported that Waterville Mayor Paul LePage, a creationist, was one of those in the Republican primary for the Governor’s race.
It escaped our notice until now, but LePage won the primary. On 09 June, the Associated Press reported, with bold added by us:
What was once a field bulging with about two dozen candidates was winnowed to five Tuesday as Waterville Mayor Paul LePage scored a stunning win in the seven-way Republican primary, and state Senate President Libby Mitchell beat three rivals to win the Democratic nomination. The major party candidates join three independents in the race to succeed term-limited Democratic Gov. John Baldacci.
The rest of the AP article discusses the Democrats. But wait, there’s more.
In the Washington Examiner, we read Romney’s PAC funding Maine candidates. Here’s an excerpt, with bold added by us:
In an interesting and very under-reported development, Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney has tossed his PAC money into several Maine races. …Romney has backed the two Republican House candidates Levesque and Scontras, as well as giving the maximum donation to LePage for Governor.
That’s all the news we have on this situation. Maine has a creationist running for governor, and Mitt Romney is supporting him. Mitt, we hardly knew ye.
