Maine women could break gubernatorial glass ceiling

Susan Cover at the Kennebec Journal/Maine Sentinel pointed out an interesting statistic that I had never stopped to consider. Maine has never had a woman governor. Maine is one of twenty-seven states and one of only two New England states (Rhode Island being the other) to have never elected a woman as governor.

This election could, as Cover points out, make history. At this point the list of female candidates includes three Democrats (Donna Dion, Dawn Hill, and Rosa Scarcelli) and one Green Party candidate (Lynne Williams).
