    Republican Gov. Paul LePage's office confirms he traveled to Spain to meet with leaders of the company that owns Central Maine Power.

    The Sun Journal reports spokeswoman Julie Rabinowitz said Monday that LePage met with Spanish utility company Iberdrola (EE'_buh_droh_luh) last Tuesday.

    LePage's office disclosed last week that he was leading a delegation to Iceland for weekend meetings.

    But LePage's office didn't mention LePage's earlier stop in Spain.

    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.

    Iberdrola's $3 billion purchase of a Connecticut company in 2015 included Central Maine Power. CMP is seeking to build a 145_mile transmission line through western Maine.

    Rabinowitz told The Associated Press that LePage and company officials discussed lowering energy costs. She didn't immediately say whether officials discussed the transmission project.

    LePage visited at least four countries this year, including Canada and Montenegro.
