FILE In this Tuesday Feb. 15, 2011 file photo, Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. With Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe's announcement that she won't seek a fourth term, a number of Maine Republicans and Democrats are considering jumping into the Senate race, setting off a scramble with just two weeks before a deadline for getting on the November ballot. Four Democrats who already announced they're running could be joined by U.S. Reps. Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree, both of whom say they're weighing a bid for the open seat. If Pingree and Michaud both run, that would leave three of Maine's four seats in Congress up for grabs. (AP Photo/Harry Hamburg/FILE) less
