Women are dominating the State House, but when will one be governor?

Posted Dec. 08, 2008, at 5:22 p.m.

Last week, Rep. Hannah Pingree of North Haven was elected Speaker of the House,

Libby Mitchell of Vassalboro was chosen by her peers as Senate President, and Rep.

Janet Mills was chosen by the Legislature as Attorney General. Yet Mainers have yet to

elect a woman governor. Who might be the first woman to win the Blaine House? Chellie

Pingree? Susan Collins? Janet Mills? Hannah Pingree? Carol Weston? Someone else?
