Maine Gov. Paul LePage has ruled out a 2018 Senate bid, Politico reports.

In April, LePage, a Republican, said he was possibly considering challenging independent U.S. Sen. Angus King for the seat. But he also said then that he felt he "wouldn't make a very good legislator."

Brent Littlefield, LePage's senior political adviser, touted the governors accomplishments but said, "there is more to do."

"Governor Paul LePage has helped the state of Maine achieve the largest number of private sector jobs in history, implement the largest tax cut in state history, ... and implement reforms which have resulted in Maine showing a significant revenue surplus earlier this year and, while these accomplishments are great, there is more to do," Littlefield said in a statement.

"Therefore the Governor will remain focused on the job at hand and not enter the United States Senate race in 2018."
