AUGUSTA — Former state Treasurer Bruce Poliquin says he won’t be seeking the chairmanship of the Maine Republican Party.

Poliquin made the statement Wednesday to WGAN-AM in Portland. He didn’t refer to any other future plans, including the possibility of running for the 2nd Congressional District now that Democratic Rep. Mike Michaud is likely going to challenge Gov. Paul LePage in next year’s gubernatorial election.

Last week Maine Republican Party Chairman Richard Cebra resigned after six months on the job.

Poliquin said at the time that others had approached him about taking the job, and that he was considering it.
