AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Democrats and Republicans will have their pick this June of a dozen governor’s candidates hoping to represent their parties on the November ballot.

Major party candidates had until 5 p.m. Monday to turn in at least 2,000 signatures from registered voters in order to qualify for the June 8 primary.

Seven Republicans and five Democrats had made the cut by the time Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap walked into the hallway just after 5 p.m. and declared, “All right, that’s it. The office is closed.”
