Early yesterday morning (April 1st), the new campaign website King4Maine2018.com lit up the internet.

On the front page, famous Maine horror author Stephen King makes this statement:

After years of criticizing Governor Paul LePage, Stephen is considering making a run for Governor in 2018. Friends and fans alike have been telling him that he could do the job better. He has taken that encouragement to heart and decided to test the waters, but would like your input.

When you watch the campaign video here, you'll see just how serious Stephen King is about it. Just remember what day it is, of course.

Good one, Stephen King. Good one.
