President Trump Wants Governor LePage To Challenge Senate Seat

President Trump Wants Governor LePage To Challenge Senate Seat”

Calling it "fake news" and "vile", Maine Gov. Paul LePage is refuting a report that said President Donald Trump is urging him to run for the U.S. Senate, saying he's made a decision to not campaign.

The Republican governor, whose term expires next year, toyed with the idea of running against King during several public interviews over the last year.

"I have not been approached by anyone", said LePage of the reports that advisers to President Donald Trump were trying to convince him to run against King, an independent who caucuses with Democrats. He is seeking re-election.

White House officials have been in touch with LePage's political team in recent weeks, the Post reported - and LePage's name came up Tuesday at a White House meeting on Senate candidates.

Last month, ME first lady Ann LePage said former Trump chief strategist Stephen Bannon had lobbied her to run for King's Senate seat.

"When asked if calling it fake news was all he was going to say, LePage made it clear he doesn't want to talk about it, 'cause it's a personal matter and you guys shouldn't be bothering me about this".

"Our campaign continues working hard and we are quickly gaining momentum", he wrote. Arrest in Andromeda botnet investigation Senate panel moves forward with bill to roll back Dodd-Frank MORE (I-Maine) for Senate in 2018.

LePage has not commented on the Post's report.
