BAILEYVILLE (WGME) – Governor Paul LePage spoke with CBS 13 Tuesday regarding speculation that he might resign.
On Tuesday morning, Gov. LePage appeared on WVOM and said that he was considering a range of options, including stepping down.
LePage later tweeted about those remarks.
Hours after speculating on the radio whether or not he'll finish his second term, Governor Paul LePage confirms resignation is one of many options he's considering.
Despite the controversy, the governor spent the entire day in Washington County, visiting the new St. Croix tissue company at the Woodland Pulp Mill, a business bringing 80 jobs to the area.
The governor also mentioned that the Maine People’s Alliance had been attacking his daughter.
The MPA sent a statement refuting that claim.
"Of course that's not true. This is another desperate lie the governor is telling to distract from his racist meltdown. It's not going to work. We've all heard his threats, his anti-gay obscenities and his racist attacks for ourselves. We're glad he's considering resigning. We hope he does the right thing to let Maine move forward."
