It appears that Ron Paul got 15 of the 24 delegates at the Maine Republican convention. Mitt's morons are saying that Ron Paul's delegates will not be seated in Tampa because of rules violations at the Maine convention. I can tell you one thing, if Mitt's morons try to prevent Ron Paul's delegates from being seated I will in no way vote for Romney. I will vote for Mickey Mouse or someone else but I will not vote for Romney if he starts acting like a spoiled brat. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/06/ron-paul-wins-a-majority-of-maine-gop-delegates/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheRawStory+%28The+Raw+Story%29Ron Paul wins a majority of Maine GOP delegates
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) acknowledges that his chances of winning the Republican presidential primary over Mitt Romney are all but gone. That however isn’t stopping him from gaining more delegates, nor his supporters from becoming prominent figures in states’ Republican outlets.
The congressman won a majority of Maine’s 24 delegates Saturday evening, according to NBC Politics. Paul’s supporters took control of the Maine Republican Convention to pledge their support of their candidate at the party’s convention in Tampa, Florida.
Romney won the Maine Republican Caucuses in February, but those results were non-binding. Due to a snowstorm, many voters were unable to cast a ballot.
Paul and his supporters have already displayed their continued impact on the primary election by taking over Alaska’s Republican convention last week.
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - With Ron Paul forces in control, the Maine Republican Convention has elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention.
The names of 15 at-large delegates from Maine to the Tampa, Fla., convention were posted Sunday morning as the state convention entered its second day. Ron Paul supporters essentially took over the convention Saturday after electing a convention chairman. Maine has a total of 24 delegates.
Paul finished a close second behind Mitt Romney in Maine's presidential caucuses but those results were nonbinding.
Charles Cragin, a Romney supporter who lost Saturday's bid to chair the convention, calls the turn of events "bizarre." He says the Paul-led delegation may not be seated at the national convention because of violations of rules of procedure this weekend in Augusta.
