President Donald Trump is reportedly urging Maine GOP Gov. Paul LePage to run for the Senate - putting him up against Sen.

The Post also reports White House officials said LePage happens to be a favorite of Trump's, including asking about him unprompted or making positive comments when he sees LePage on TV. The Post story cited two anonymous sources with knowledge of the discussions in the White House.

King, an independent who typically caucuses with Democrats, has served in the Senate since 2013, and was the state's governor from 1995 to 2003.

LePage's approval rating in ME is at 42 percent, according to Morning Consult, ranking him the nation's seventh-least popular governor, the Post reported.

"If I run for U.S Senate, I will be a single man", LePage said last month.

"When asked if calling it fake news was all he was going to say, LePage made it clear he doesn't want to talk about it, 'cause it's a personal matter and you guys shouldn't be bothering me about this".

State Sen. Eric Brakey, R-Androscoggin, who is running against King, released a statement about the Post's report.

"Our campaign continues working hard and we are quickly gaining momentum", he wrote. I am not distracted by Washington gossip. He declined to comment on LePage specifically, saying the conversations are private.
