Cutler, LePage cross paths briefly in Lewiston

Open Season

LEWISTON - Tension filled it was not.

There simply wasn't enough time.

Gov. Paul LePage and Eliot Cutler, one of two men trying to take the governor's job, crossed paths in Lewiston on Thursday morning.

Cutler, an independent, attended a Business-to-Business trade show at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee as part of a campaign swing through Lewiston. LePage attended the event, but in his capacity as governor.


They arrived at virtually the same time.

Cutler shook LePage's hand and they exchanged hellos, but that was it. LePage went to one side of the Colisee floor and Cutler went to the other.

No debating. No shouting. No fireworks.

As the two men toured opposite sides of the trade show, both attracted attention from attendees and trade show participants - mostly businesses in the Lewiston-Auburn area.


Now that the primary election is over, the three candidates for governor (LePage, Cutler and Democrat Mike Michaud) are likely to spend much more time on the campaign trail.

That means, it probably won't be the last time two or more of them end up at the same place.
