RESULTS BY COUNTY: CUMBERLAND COUNTY | ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY | AROASTOOK COUNTY | FRANKLIN COUNTY | HANCOCK COUNTY | KENNEBEC COUNTY | KNOX COUNTY | LINCOLN COUNTY | OXFORD COUNTY | PENOBSCOT COUNTY | PISCATAQUIS COUNTY | SAGADAHOC COUNTY | SOMERSET COUNTY | WALDO COUNTY | WASHINGTON COUNTY | YORK COUNTY

Mills took office as governor of Maine in 2019.

LePage ran the state from 2011 to 2018, clashing with Mills over policies ranging from affordable housing to the opioid epidemic, to abortion rights and restrictions.

In an interview with Mills before Election Day, Maine’s Total Coverage asked what she would do on the first day of a second term.

“Good question. I’d just go with the stuff we’ve already started,” she said.

Those priorities include improving Maine’s schools, which it says will be fully funded for the first time in history, and implementing the state’s 10-year strategic economic development plan.

“We have the 11th best rate of economic recovery in the nation. I’ll take that. We’re moving forward,” she said.

We asked her about the state budget, which has increased by about 20% since she took office in 2019.

“Revenues have increased and revenues have increased because we’ve been very careful with the budget,” she said.

She also noted that during her time as governor, the state savings account or “rainy day fund” has quadrupled, without raising taxes, while some of the budget surplus is sent back to Mainers with $850 relief checks.

“I think as a small state we do our best to make sure people get the money back in their pockets,” she said.
