Paul LePage Re-Establishes Residency in Maine — Another Run for Governor?

July 9, 2020

Former Maine Governor Paul LePage has re-established residency in the state, apparently gearing up to take on the current governor in November 2022.

LePage, 71, a Republican, served as governor of Maine from 2011 to 2019, before leaving because of term limits. He also left the state, moving to Florida for the weather and to escape taxes.

Janet Mills, a Democrat, won the 2018 election for governor. She has taken heavy criticism for her far-reaching coronavirus restrictions even though Maine has been hit relatively lightly by the virus.

LePage was considered by many observers the most conservative governor in the United States.

On Thursday, July 9, he posted on his Facebook page that he registered to vote in Maine last week and replaced his Florida license plates with Maine license plates today.
