The Republican candidate for Governor of Maine plans on offering the president some free advice once elected.

Maine Republican gubernatorial candidate Paul LePage says he isn't afraid to tell President Obama to "go to hell" over federal spending that is driving up the national debt and "taking us to a place where my children and my grandchildren will never come back."

So, how is channeling voter anger playing in liberal Maine?

We are getting to crunch time in the race to be Maine's next governor. A new poll last week suggested that Democrat Libby Mitchell and Republican Paul LePage are in a dead heat with approximately 30 percent of the vote each.

Independent Eliot Cutler is at 9 percent. The two other independents, Shawn Moody at 5 percent and Kevin Scott at less than 1 percent, are essentially out of the race. Neither has the financing nor the experience to be viable candidates.
