Maine Republican Governor Paul LePage is breaking ranks with the GOP. He says he doesn't want any of the GOP contenders as a nominee.
LePage tells the Portland Press Herald that he wants a floor fight at the GOP convention and hopes a "dark horse" candidate emerges.
LePage said the current GOP candidates broke Ronald Reagan's rule about not speaking ill of a fellow Republican and "have injured themselves and injured the party" with their attacks on each other.
"The candidates in this primary have beat themselves up so badly it would be nice to have a fresh face that we all could say, 'Okay.' The country deserves better than having people stand up and keep criticizing each other."
A few hours after he made his comments to reporters, his press secretary emailed to say she wanted it clarified that the governor would support whoever won the nomination and that the country is better off electing anybody but Obama.
