WINDHAM, Maine (AP) - Gov. Paul LePage has postponed a meeting with residents in the southern Maine town of Windham, due to snow that hit parts of the state hard.

The Republican governor was set to hold a town hall meeting at Windham High School on Wednesday. A spokesman for LePage says the meeting will be held next week. The meeting will be similar in format to a Jan. 6 meeting in Bridgton at which LePage made comments that attracted widespread criticism.

LePage, talking about Maine’s heroin epidemic, described out-of-state drug dealers as “guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty” and said “half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave.” The governor later apologized, saying the remark was a slip of the tongue.

The Windham meeting will be public.
