Fresh off an appearance as a guest panelist at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, Republican Gov. Paul LePage says he will appear on the “Fox and Friends” news show Monday morning.

“I’ll be on Fox and Friends tomorrow at 7 a.m. to speak on Maine’s successful welfare reforms, a model for other states to follow,” LePage tweeted Sunday.

“Fox and Friends” is a daily morning news and talk program on the Fox News Channel. The program is considered to have conservative political leanings in its presentation.

LePage was invited to serve Friday on a panel at a CPAC event that discussed “Welfare Reform: Restoring Human Dignity and Self-sufficiency.”

LePage appeared on the same day that the conference featured President Trump as its guest speaker. The conference was held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

LePage said he has introduced and accomplished modest welfare reform since taking office in 2011, including a five-year cap on welfare benefits, requiring drug testing for welfare recipients convicted of drug-related crimes, and reducing benefits for non-citizens.
