Paul LePage, who was governor of Maine from 2011 to 2019, blasted the current governor for spending money like a "drunken sailor."
LePage, who is running for governor of Maine against Janet Mills, current governor, didn't go easy on Mills regarding her spending.
"Maine Gov. Janet Mills (D) went head-to-head with her Republican challenger, former Gov. Paul LePage, for their second televised debate just weeks away from the November midterms," reported Fox.
"The debate, held in the CBS13 studios in Portland, Maine, touched on familiar themes to this election cycle, including the high cost of living, abortion, and education," reported Fox.
LePage ripped on Mills in the fiery exchange:
"The only difference is a drunken sailor spends his own money," LePage said.
Mills shot back, "It’s unbelievable to suggest giving people money to help fight inflation – which is one of the best inflation relief measures in the country – is some sort of gimmick."
"I’m sorry, governor, I don’t know which economic school you went to, but putting money in a hot economy only drives up inflation not lowers it," LePage responded to Mills.
"If you wanted to lower inflation, the best way to do it is lower the income tax and make it retroactive to 2021," LePage hammered.
The two continued in a heated exchange about various issues.
"On abortion, Mills reaffirmed her pro-choice stance, saying she would make no changes to state laws codifying Roe v. Wade. LePage, who identifies as pro-life, was more evasive, saying he wouldn’t change the law," reported Fox.
