Maine Governor LePage Released From Hospital

Maine Gov. Paul LePage has been released from the hospitalized and is on the mend.

A statement released by Peter Steele, a spokesman for the Republican governor, said, "Governor LePage is back in the Blaine House resting and getting ready to return to work in the next couple of days. He and his family thank everyone for their concerns and well wishes."

WCSH reported that LePage's daughter, Lauren LePage, said he is "on the mend."

Steele said the 69-year-old LePage experienced discomfort on Saturday while visiting family in New Brunswick, Canada.

Steele said doctors decided to keep the governor hospitalized at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor overnight Sunday for more observation. He added that the governor was stable and expected to make a full recovery.

Steele did not provide more details about the nature of the discomfort.

LePage first went to a hospital in New Brunswick, accompanied by his wife, Ann LePage. He was then taken by ambulance to Presque Isle in northern Maine, and then transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. He arrived in Bangor late on Saturday night.
