1. Maine could make history twice this November by electing an openly gay governor and electing the youngest openly gay legislator. Mike Michaud ran unopposed in Tuesday’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and will face Republican incumbent Paul LePage and independent Eliot Cutler, while 21-year-old Ryan Fecteau blew out David Flood in the Democratic primary for state representative from Maine’s heavily Democratic 11th District and will face Republican Debi Davis. Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey was closeted when elected and later came out before resigning in 2004.
