AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- With Mitt Romney's nomination all but decided, Ron Paul supporters wrested control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention, party officials said as the two-day convention neared its end Sunday. The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory.

Hmm...next headline out of Maine....Maine GOP(e) decertifying the Ron Paul delegates with Rule 7, paragraph 3, section 2, or something similar.
Too many people on drugs.
Doesn’t the riffraff know that the rules are written to keep the establishment in power and not to undermine them?
ROn Paul, stealing an election one rediculous caucus at a time.
He’ll end up with enough states to be on the ballot, I’m guessing.
Wow! Even the liberals in Maine hate Mitt
Don’t send a RINO to ME!
That's great. That's teriffic. That's ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...snoooore. (/s)
Ron Paul did a great job in Maine. Romney can learn from him or ring his hands and call his lawyers.
I wrote on this forum in February that in my view Ron Paul won Maine’s caucus. If Romney didn’t see the signs then it is an indication of bad things to come.
Paul actually won the caucuses there - the state GOPe leader just decided not to count certain counties so Mittens could win.
Ron Paul seems to me the only candidate who is not part of the government’s scam on the common people of this country
Never mind the fact that he's a loon. Which hardly becomes the "common people of this country" -- who are better than that.
ABO, the perfect is the enemy of the good, and any other excuses from people telling us to vote for Mutt. They all seem to apply to Paul as well.
Tthe GOP convention will be a hoot. The GOP aren’t gonna let Ron near the podium and mic. It will be interesting.
Ron Paul killed the establishment ( or at least mortally wounded it) the establishment in Maine. Maybe he can do that at the Nationals.
“Never mind the fact that he’s a loon.”
Perhaps, but what differentiates one loon from another, in this case the frontrunner?
I don't know that I'd call Romney a loon. A disappointment, to be sure, but not a loon.
Really Oh how is this MoRon Paul different?The fact that he is nearly a 80 year old senile old fool!Folks he has been in Congress for Nearly 24 years!He has been in Elected office longer than Mr Ultra liberal Franklin D Roosevelt!How

Hey if you were to be sexually harassed as a woman Senile Ron Paul would tell you just go away how does that make you feel if you were a woman?How about this!How will you pay for items with gold and silver like RP wants?He thinks the only currency should be gold and silver so how you going to buy Bread,Milk and Gas with Silver?How do you think the press will react when he said would have voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act good start there!
What a Jerk Ron Paul is for blaming America for Sept 11th attacks!He would not Kill Bin Laden if given the chance he is senile folks!He acts like we are the problem really?Oh Ron Paul and The question that should also be asked to Senile Ron Paul is were the Armenians to blame when the Muslims committed genocide in Turkey during the First World War?Did they support Israel and were punished for their support during the First World War?Oh that is right Israel was not around Ron Paul oh but we are so anti muslim no we are telling the truth about Muslims!How about the bombings and killing of people in Nigeria by Muslims they do not endorse Israel the Muslims hate anyone who is not Muslim!They Kill many in countries who are not Muslim in the Philippines and Thailand and they are not big supporters of Israel more proof of his ignorance!I guess MoRon Paul has not been paying attention to what has happened to innocent non Muslims in Sudan and Nigeria!Ron Paul and his voters Jihadists Useful Idiots!
Wake Up Ron Paul and his supporters are the Cult of Personality people!
He needs 2 or 3 more states to be formally placed in nomination.
Green Papers has Iowa with 7 for Santorum, 7 for Paul, 6 for Romney, 4 for Gingrich, and 4 unpledged.
I don’t know if that counts as a “plurality” for Paul. If not then he needs 3 more states.
You should know that the convention system is for those who show up for it. Heck, politics is for those who show up. The battle is SUPPOSED to go to those who show up for it.
