Watch out Angus King.

The Amazing Kreskin, the famous mentalist, has endorsed a different independent candidate hoping to become Maine’s next U.S. senator.

Kreskin is backing Steve Woods, the Yarmouth Town Council chairman and one of four independent candidates who will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.

“While Maine is not my home, for what it is worth, as a U.S. citizen, I fervently and with much conviction endorse and support Steve Woods to be an Independent member of the United States Senate,” Kreskin said on his website.

Unfortunately for Woods, Kreskin’s endorsement did not include a prediction that Woods will win. It apparently has more to do with the fact the two are old friends. Kreskin called Woods the kind of independent,  team player needed in the Senate.

“A few months ago,” Kreskin wrote, “I became reacquainted with Steve Woods, a gentleman that I had not seen for 30 years.  Steve worked for me from 1979 to 1981 as my tour and road manager covering over 900 shows. “

Woods, meanwhile, announced on Wednesday that he was endorsing former Gov. Angus King.  He and King share a desire to restore independent values in Washington, Woods said. Nevertheless, Woods also said he will continue to run against King and the rest of the field.

There are two other independent candidates in addition to King and Woods: Andrew Ian Dodge of Harpswell and Danny Dalton of Brunswick.

On Tuesday, Republicans nominated Secretary of State Charlie Summers of Scarborough and Democrats nominated Maine Sen. Cynthia Dill of Cape Elizabeth.
