Maine Governor Paul LePage testifies before a U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee hearing to review draft legislation on hydropower, on Capitol Hill in Washington May 13, 2015.

Paul LePage, the controversial governor of Maine and a fervent supporter of Donald Trump during his presidential run, said on a local radio station Thursday that the president needs to find a right-hand person to assist in running his administration more smoothly. “We’ve got to tell him that the TV show’s over and he’s got to move on now,” LePage said at one point. “In his case, there’s too much competition,” LePage continued. “Everybody’s fighting to be that No. 1 person, you’re going to have a lot of slip-ups. I’ve met Donald Trump. He does promote some competition. He brings that business aspect to it.”
