(NEWS CENTER Maine)-- I had never met Ann LePage before so I was not sure what to expect. I have chatted with Governor LePage before and heard him talk about her (a lot). She admitted to me before we started that she was a little nervous and that she preferred the back row over the front row.

Within the first 30 seconds she asked me a question and I answered with 'Yes ma'am'. She joked that if I ever called her ma'am again she would throat punch me, I knew we were about to get along just fine.

Once the interview started we chatted about everything from her work with veterans, her going sky-diving with Travis Mills, her husband's romantic side, and more. She was wonderful to talk with. Personable, real, passionate, emotional. It was a great conversation and I am so glad I had the chance to sit with her for the short time I did.
