Talk about a tense home life. A married couple in small-town Maine will fight each other for the same Waterville Ward 1 position.

David Johnson was nominated to the slot on Wednesday evening by the Waterville Republican City Committee caucus. His wife, Jennifer Johnson, was nominated a week earlier by the Waterville Democratic City Committee caucus, The Associated Press reported.
