LePage breaks silence to say Trump can win state

LePage: Trump will beat Clinton in Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Republican Gov. Paul LePage has broken his recent vow against speaking to the media and says Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a good chance of winning in Maine.

In an interview with conservative website Breitbart, LePage says Trump will win three of Maine's four electoral votes.

A poll released this week by Colby College and The Boston Globe suggested Maine voters supported Trump 39 percent compared to 42 percent support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

LePage, who has said Trump was his third choice for president, says the "silent majority" will come out to support Trump.

The governor blamed Democrats for not reducing taxes, energy costs and regulations. He says American people want the "plain truth," not "politically correct truth."
