LePage says he’s ‘going to retire and go to Florida’ when he leaves office

Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage says he plans to become a resident of Florida after his final term expires at the end of the year.

LePage, who is term-limited, told reporters during a press conference for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Eric Brakey that he plans to claim residence in the Sunshine State.

LePage was asked what he’ll do if Democratic gubernatorial candidate Janet Mills wins the race to succeed him.

“I’ll be a resident of Florida if Janet Mills wins, I can promise you that,” he said. “I’ll also be in Florida if Shawn Moody wins, ’cause I’m going to retire and go to Florida.”

Shawn Moody is the Republican attempting to succeed LePage.
