Governor Paul LePage Calls Senate Candidacy Reports “Fake News”

Rumors have continued to swirl that Maine Governor Paul LePage is considering a candidacy for United States Senate, even after he declared earlier this year he had no intention to do so.

It is here that state senator Eric Brakey has announced that he is running for US Senate, challenging Independent Angus King for his seat.
