BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is back in Maine, and he’s being joined once again by Republican Gov. Paul LePage.

The Bangor visit Wednesday afternoon is the candidate’s second time in Maine this year. He was in Portland before the March caucuses that he lost to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

LePage told WVOM that he’ll be there to “cheer him on.”

This time, Trump is visiting Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, which is more conservative than Maine’s 1st Congressional District.

Theoretically, he could pick up one of Maine’s four electoral votes by winning the district even if he were to lose the statewide vote in November. Maine is one of two states that allow for electoral votes to be divided by congressional district.
