    Maine GOP Gov. Paul LePage has ruled out talking to the media - except "respectful and fair" talk radio hosts. 

    LePage told WVOM-FM Tuesday that though he doesn't always like the radio hosts' questions, he thinks they're "appropriate." 

    The governor says he wants to "move on" almost two weeks after leaving a Democratic lawmaker an obscenity-laden voicemail and wishing he could point a gun at his forehead. 

    LePage has apologized and blamed the media for fueling the controversy.

    Democrats want LePage to resign, which LePage has ruled out. House members have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to say whether they support a special session to take action on LePage's conduct. 

    The GOP Senate president says caucus members supported reconvening for a narrow resolution demanding LePage seek "professional help" for "explosive behavior."
