DescriptionIn a video posted online Tuesday afternoon, Maine's Republican candidate for governor Paul LePage is seen promising that should he be elected, "You're gonna be seeing a lot of me on the front page saying Governor LePage tells Obama to go to hell."

The video was posted on Dirigo Blue, a left-leaning blog that's goes after LePage on a near-daily basis. One of the web site's latest posts includes LePage's Maine driving record, where purported state records claim he received numerous speeding tickets. LePage said in Saturday's gubernatorial debate that he had "no idea" how many points were on his driving record, but the blog claims he has three. The maximum a Maine driver can accumulate is four.

Here's the text from LePage's comments:

"We came from behind because we have a message. We have a message that says: One, we've had enough of the federal government. We've had enough. Two, we've had enough of the state government. And number three, government should be working for the people, not the people working for the government. And as your governor, you're gonna be seeing a lot of me on the front page saying Governor LePage tells Obama to go to hell."
