    Maine Governor Campaigns for Mass. US Senate Candidate Diehl

    Maine governor Paul LePage was the headliner at a fundraiser for Republican US Senate candidate Geoff Diehl as he tries to defeat Senator Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. There was a handful of protesters outside Diehl's fundraiser at the Château restaurant in Waltham where LePage did not hold back on his outspoken, and what his critics would call offensive, rhetoric. Could his support backfire on Diehl?

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage is planning to move to Florida after his term ends and will possibly teach at a college or university, the outgoing state executive announced.

    At a campaign event Monday in support of Eric Brakey, the Republican candidate challenging independent U.S. Sen. Angus King, the Republican governor said he is done with politics himself.

    According to the Press Herald, LePage, who has a home in Florida, said he will move to the Sunshine State for tax purposes. He said he has been talking with a few colleges and universities about the possibility of teaching from September through April; however, he declined to say which ones.

    Republican Shawn Moody, Democrat Janet Mills and independents Terry Hayes and Alan Caron are on Tuesday's ballot to replace LePage, who is in his final two months of his eight-year term.
