WASHINGTON, Maine — A rematch of the 2010 legislative race is shaping up for the Maine House District 52 seat.

Former state Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Miller of Somerville has filed papers with the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics & Election Practices to seek the Democratic nomination for the House seat that represents Washington, Somerville, Chelsea, Whitefield, Hibberts Gore and part of Jefferson.

Miller served three terms in the House but was defeated in her attempt for a fourth consecutive term in 2010 by Republican Deborah Sanderson of Chelsea.

Sanderson, who won that race 2,135 votes to 1,760, has filed papers to again seek the Republican nomination.
