Baldacci Considers Return to Maine Politics
01/15/2013 1:44 PM ET  

The former Maine governor told The Associated Press that he's not ruling out a return to politics or possibly challenging current Gov. Paul LePage in two years.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Former Democratic Gov. John Baldacci said he's concerned about "the negativism, the bravado, the fighting'' that he says characterized Republican Gov. Paul LePage's first two years in office. And he's not ruling out a return to politics or possibly challenging LePage in two years.

Baldacci says he cares about his home state and wants to do his part but says he hasn't decided whether that means a return to politics, or some other role.

Baldacci spoke to The Associated Press after addressing the national debt at Tuesday's Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce annual breakfast in Hermon.

He's teaming up with former Republican opponent Rick Bennett on the state chapter of "Fix the Debt.'' He says problem-solving requires bipartisan solutions.
