(Danielle Waugh/NECN) -- Gov. Paul LePage's recent controversies could be costing Maine money, now that several tourists have cancelled trips to express their disapproval.
The hashtag "#BoycottMaine" gained traction on social media last week, after LePage made international news for making racially charged remarks about drug dealers and leaving an obscene voicemail for a lawmaker.
"I was repulsed," said Collin Rees, a resident of Washington D.C., with plans to travel to Bar Harbor for Labor Day weekend. He decided to cancel his trip and hike in Virginia instead.
