"Cover Story" piece on U.S. represenative John Baldacci, D-Maine, who has announced that he will be a Democratic candidate for Maine's governorship in 2002. After convincing former state senator Shelly Pingree, D-North Haven, to drop her gubernatorial aspirations and challenge U.S. senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, next year, people representing Baldacci were involved in close-door negotiations with Republican legislative leaders to tailor the Clean Election law in such a way as to get rid of threats to Baldacci from likely Green Party nominee Jonathan Carter and former Lewiston mayor John Jenkins, who is thinking of running for governor as an independent.
