3-Way Maine Governor Race Leaves 2 Still Fighting

Wednesday, 03 Nov 2010 07:06 AM

AUGUSTA, Maine — Only the losing Democrat is sure of the outcome in Maine's three-way race for governor.

Republican Paul LePage and independent Eliot Cutler sent supporters home early Wednesday while their race remained too close to call.

The tea party-backed LePage had 38 percent of the vote to Cutler's 37 shortly before counting stopped for the night. Democrat and state Senate President Libby Mitchell had 19 percent and conceded.

LePage would become the first popularly elected Franco-American governor of Maine and said he was confident he would win.

Cutler said it was far too early to claim victory or defeat, adding that he expected a close race for weeks.
