Paul LePage's term as Maine's governor may be coming to an end, but he still plans to be involved once his days in office are over.
LePage reportedly said he may run again in 2022 if he does not like the performance of Governor-elect Janet Mills.
"I am gonna monitor this governor's performance," LePage said on WVOM Tuesday morning. "And if she [Mills] does what I think she is going to do, which is return to the days of the Baldacci 2010 era, I will run again in 2022."
LePage says he expects a smooth transition following his departure, and claims he wants the next administration to succeed despite his preconceived notions regarding Mills.
"I fully intend to cooperate, and I fully intend to leave the Blaine House in perfect shape," he said. "We want to continue to see the state prosper."
Mills beat Republican gubernatorial candidate Shawn Moody back in November. Moody had been endorsed by LePage.
