LePage's Referencing Of Black 'Son' Puts Spotlight On Young Jamaican Man


They met in Jamaica through Raymond's father, who caddied for LePage during a vacation, said Dan Demeritt, LePage's spokesperson, according to the newspaper. Raymond moved in with the LePage family in 2002.

Raymond is neither a U.S. citizen nor has he been formally adopted by LePage, the Press Herald reports.

Raymond -- who is also a golfer -- began college at Husson University (LePage's alma mater), playing golf and studying sports management, according to the report.

He graduated from Grambling State University in Louisiana with a degree in kinesiology. After working briefly as a golf pro in North Carolina, Ramond is now a graduate student in business administration at the University of Louisiana-Monroe, the Press Herald reports.

LePage's office was unavailable for comment at press time.
