The Maine gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Paul LePage (R) is eligible for re-election. The winner of the election will serve a 4-year term in office.

LePage has said that will likely seek a second term as governor.[1] However in June 2013, LePage surprised even his own political adviser when he announced that he might forgo a 2014 re-election bid in order to run for Rep. Mike Michaud's seat in the U.S. House, which will be opened in 2014 assuming Michaud follows through on his anticipated gubernatorial campaign. LePage said he was exploring the congressional race, "because it can't be any worse in Washington than it is here...Everything's on the table. Retirement, Social Security, running for Congress, maybe going back to Marden's to stock shelves. Who knows? I don't take myself as seriously as all you do."[2]

A report released by Governing in December 2012 named him as one of five governors vulnerable to losing re-election in 2013-2014.[3]

Maine has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.
