Spokesman: LePage released from Bangor hospital after weekend health episode

AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage was back in the Blaine House and resting Monday after a weekend health episode that led to him being taken back to Maine from a family trip to New Brunswick, according to a spokesman.

It was unclear when the governor returned to Augusta. His office released scant details about his condition over the weekend, releasing a statement Sunday saying he felt “discomfort” Saturday evening and was taken by ambulance from a New Brunswick hospital to Presque Isle.

By Saturday’s end, LePage was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where his office said while the governor was expected to make a full recovery, he was being held overnight for examination. Spokesman Peter Steele said he was back in Augusta on Monday.

“Governor LePage is back in the Blaine House today, resting and getting ready to return to work in the next couple of days,” Steele said in an email. “He and his family thank everyone for their concerns and well wishes.”
