    Maine Gov. Paul LePage is among a group of fellow governors backing President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, LePage and five fellow governors wrote to Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen this week, citing what they called Trump's "transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula."

    McMaster was an early Trump supporter in the 2016 election. Trump has backed him in next month's five-way South Carolina GOP primary.
