Now that the Democrats have recaptured majorities in the House and Senate, their nominees are virtually assured of occupying the offices of attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer and auditor.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ The list of candidates for four of Maine's top state offices will get shorter when newly elected lawmakers nominate their choices.

Now that the Democrats have recaptured majorities in the House and Senate, their nominees are virtually assured of occupying the offices of attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer and auditor. The parties will nominate their choices on Tuesday.

For attorney general, trial lawyer Timothy Shannon of Yarmouth faces Janet Mills, who previously held the post, in Democratic voting. The Republican incumbent, William Schneider, is seeking another term.

Matthew Dunlap, a former secretary of state, is seeking his old job in a race against fellow Democrat Brian Bolduc of Auburn. State Auditor Neria Douglass is now running for treasurer against former lawmaker Jeremy Fischer. The auditor's post is also open.
