Governor before election

Angus King

Elected Governor

John Baldacci

The Maine gubernatorial election of 2002 took place on November 5, 2002. Incumbent Independent Governor Angus King was term limited, and unable to seek re-election. U.S. Congressman John Baldacci won the Democratic primary uncontested, while former State Representative Peter Cianchette emerged from the Republican primary victorious. Baldacci and Cianchetti squared off in the general election, along with Green Party nominee Jonathan Carter and independent State Representative John Michael. Ultimately, Baldacci prevailed to win what would be his first of two terms as governor, with Carter taking an unusually high amount of the vote for a third-party candidate.
