    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    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.
