Augusta, Maine: Only one state executive position is up for election in 2014 in the state of Maine. Five candidates have filed to challenge Incumbent Paul LePage for election to the office of Governor.

LePage is running for a second term as governor.[1][2] The often divisive Republican is widely considered one of the most vulnerable gubernatorial incumbents facing re-election next year. Sources ranging from Governing, Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball, The Washington Post and Daily Kos have repeatedly rated the 2014 Maine governor's race as a tossup.[3][4][5][6]
