PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Republican Maine Gov. Paul LePage says he and his wife are keeping former first lady Barbara Bush and the Bush family in their prayers.

LePage tweeted Sunday evening that Mrs. Bush, wife of former President George H.W. Bush, “is one of a kind and she has been a wonderful friend and inspiration to so many people in Maine.”

A family spokesman said Sunday that the 92-year-old Mrs. Bush is in failing health and won’t be seeking additional medical treatment.

The Bushes have long ties to Maine. They spend their summers at a seaside home in Kennebunkport and are involved in the community.

In Portland, the Maine Medical Center’s children’s hospital bears Barbara Bush’s name. Medical Center President Rich Petersen says the Bushes “live their lives always putting others first.”
