Cianchette Running

Peter Cianchette is set to announce today that he will seek the Republican Gubernatorial nomination.
Cianchette was the party's nominee in 2002 and has been considered likely to make another run for the job in 2006. In 2002, Cianchette gathered 41 percent of the votes compared to 48 percent for Democratic Gov. John Baldacci. [...]

He supports a constitutional amendment to cap spending by state, county and local governments. He also wants a constitutional amendment to require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to create or increase taxes or fees.

The Phoenix has more background.

On a related note, Rep. Ken Lindell dropped me an email to say his "Dump Baldacci PAC" is back up under new management. The website still looks like someone threw up all over FrontPage.
