AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Gov. Paul LePage has met face-to-face with Democratic legislative leaders - and GOP leaders as well.

The Republican governor had rebuffed House Speaker Mark Eves and Senate President Justin Alfond since abruptly canceling a meeting with the two Democratic legislative leaders in December. At the time, LePage said he was angry because the Democratic Party was sending a cameraman to follow him at public events.

The stalemate continued for two month before ending Monday afternoon.

Officials say LePage met for an hour in the cabinet room with Eves and Alfond, along with Republican leaders, Rep. Kenneth Fredette and Sen. Mike Thibodeau. LePage's spokeswoman says it was a "pleasant conversation."
