Nope. Ranked choice voting specifically does not apply to state reps/senators or governor. It was challenged and then declared unconstitutional by the state supreme court because the Maine Constitution requires those offices be elected with a plurality. We only use ranked choice for federal offices and primaries.

LePage can still win the same way he did the first two times: a spoiler 3rd party candidate splitting the opposition. He has a lot of support, despite never being very popular, and he's running on "LePage 2.0" promising a "calmer and more issue-focused" version of himself... which dumbshit people will eat up.
