Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-01) said “she’ll decide on a 2018 gubernatorial run by January. … Pingree said that working on statewide issues such as agriculture in Maine would be appealing. But she said the Democrats also could take back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018.”

Pingree: “I appreciate [that] people have called me and asked me and I‘m certainly giving it some thought … but I’m closing in on a decision because you can’t wait forever.” (Bangor Daily News)

A spokesman also said Monday that she will decide by this month.
