Baldacci and LePage share luncheon

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine Gov.-elect Paul LePage says Gov. John Baldacci has agreed to attend the Republican's inauguration next month.

In a brief interview after Cabinet announcements Wednesday, LePage said the outgoing Democratic governor had invited him to a Blaine House luncheon earlier in the day. He said the two didn't discuss politics or governing much, but talked more about the history of the governor's mansion and their families.

LePage also said he asked Baldacci, a Democrat, to break with tradition and attend his inauguration in early January and Baldacci accepted. LePage also said Baldacci's "offered to do anything he can" to make the transition easier and has been very cordial.
