White House advisers told The Washington Post that Trump plans to call LePage to encourage him to run and offer his endorsement.

Paul LePage has a new reason to consider running for the Senate next year: The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump has said he wants LePage to challenge Independent Sen.

USA Today lists some of LePage's more controversial comments as including: calling student protesters idiots, for which he apologized; saying Indian immigrants were "lovely people, but you've got to have an interpreter"; and suggesting he makes up fake stories to mislead reporters.

LePage's name has reportedly come up as the White House discusses the 2018 midterm races in various states.

LePage dodged a question about whether his wife, Ann LePage, who has also been rumored as a possible Trump-backed Republican candidate against King, would enter the race.

But LePage came up again Tuesday at a White House meeting on Senate candidates, as Trump and his team went through a list of states and races - including Arizona, Missouri and ME - the officials said, looking at individual candidates and poll numbers and what candidates could get in the races.

LePage is now in his second term as governor.
