President Donald Trump is reportedly urging Maine GOP Gov. Paul LePage to run for the Senate - putting him up against Sen.
"The president is actively engaged in fundraising, candidate recruitment and other efforts to help elect Republicans up and down the ballot", White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Post.
Two anonymous sources have told the Washington Post that Trump has told advisers he plans to call LePage to ask him to run against Sen. He declined to comment on LePage specifically, saying the conversations are private.

King, a former ME governor himself, is an independent who usually caucuses with Democrats. The governor's senior political adviser addressed rumors of a possible run in May by announcing LePage planned to "remain focused on the job at hand" and not pursue the office.
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.
