BOOTHBAY, Maine (AP) - The Maine home purchased by Republican Gov. Paul LePage and his wife Ann three years ago is back on the market - at nearly double the price that the couple purchased it for in 2014.

The governor and his wife bought the Boothbay three-bedroom house out of foreclosure in 2014, paying $215,000 for the private residence. The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2eYOQJT ) the house is listed for sale at $409,000.

At the time the LePages purchased the home, the average value of surrounding homes was about $700,000.
