From Bangor Daily News:

Gov. Paul LePage announced last month that he was supporting Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s national day of prayer and fasting.But LePage is neither attending Saturday’s event at Houston’s Reliant Stadium nor holding any public gatherings here in Maine.

“The governor just thinks tomorrow should be a time of reflection and prayer,” said Adrienne Bennett, a spokeswoman for LePage. “He had no plans to attend Gov. Perry’s event.”

In June, the governor signed a proclamation after Perry’s appeal in May to the nation’s other governors to support the event. LePage is featured on the organizer’s website, theresponseusa.com, which describes the gathering as a chance to heal the country’s political, financial and moral wounds.

“According to the Bible, the answer to a nation in such crisis is to gather in humility and repentance and ask God to intervene,” the site reads.

Here is the Governor’s released official proclamation.
