The clarification comes after reports Tuesday that LePage was considering resigning.

Maine does not have a lieutenant governor, so if LePage were to step down, the president of the state’s senate, Republican Michael Thibodeau, would take over.

LePage, who is in his second term as the state’s Republican governor, apologized for the voicemail that he left for Rep. Drew Gattine which critics deemed “racially charged.”
