Mills To Contest Primary

A day after former 1st CD Representative David Emery announced his defferal to Cianchette, State Sen. Peter Mills of Cornville has announced that he will announce on Tuesday.

Former Senate President Richard Bennett may jump in as well.
[Bennett] said he expects to make an announcement in a month or so.

Unlike former U.S. Rep. David Emery, who said Thursday he was scrapping consideration of a gubernatorial campaign because 2002 Republican nominee Peter Cianchette had decided to make another try for the Blaine House, Bennett said he felt that the "more candidates, the better."

Added Bennett: "What´s motivating me to think about this is the real feeling that Maine needs a dialogue about our collective future. A gubernatorial election is a unique opportunity to do that."

I wonder if a primary will be good or bad for the Republicans.
