TROY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Sen. Susan Collins clarified statements she made about the possibility of running for governor next year with NEWS CENTER Wednesday.
The Senator stopped by for a visit with kids at the Troy Central Elementary School. The school invited Collins to speak about her experience and read to the students.
There she reflected on her 21 years in Washington—valuable seniority Collins said she fears giving up if she were to leave the senate and run for the Blaine House.
“The governor gets to work more directly on job creation, education issues, economic development, all of which are so important to our state,” she said. “So I'm weighing the issue of where I can do the most for the people of Maine, but I really don't expect to make a decision any time soon.”
