(NEWS CENTER) -- A senator from Aroostook County is pushing to cut Governor Paul LePage's pension, if he doesn't win re-election.

      Current law dictates that even if a governor serves just one day in office and then resigns, he or she could still collect $26,000 dollars a year until they die.

    But, Sen. Troy Jackson of Allagash believes Governor LePage should face the pension cut because of what Jackson says is LePage's double standard regarding the state employee retirement policy. 

    We talk with NEWSCENTER political analysts Phil Harriman and Ethan Strimling about that and other issues.
