BOOTHBAY, Maine (AP) - Maine Gov. Paul LePage and his wife Ann have purchased a home in Boothbay where they intend to live after he leaves office.

Ann LePage said the couple had been looking for about 10 years for a home near the coast. But she said they'll continue to live in the Blaine House for as long as her husband is governor. LePage, who's seeking re-election, is currently locked in a three-way race with independent Eliot Cutler and Democrat Mike Michaud.

The couple previously lived in Waterville but sold that home. The Lincoln County News reported that the Boothbay home's assessed value is $355,000. However, LePage told The Associated Press that they're paying $215,000 for the three-bedroom foreclosure property. It isn't on the water but has a right-of-way to the Damariscotta River.
