  • Maine Republican Caucus Live Results: Cruz Takes Surprising Lead Over Trump

    Patch ^ | March 5, 2016 | Feroze Dhanoa
    Republican voters in Maine are gathering Saturday to participate in the presidential nominating caucus where pundits picked Donald Trump to win riding on the momentum he picked up on Super Tuesday and the endorsement from Maine Gov. Paul LePage. While there is a lack of polling for Saturday's elections, the results could be unpredictable as both Trump and Clinton have been weaker in caucus states that in primary states, as reported by the New York Times. Results from Saturday's caucus will be announced by the party in Lewiston at 7 p.m. Unofficial results from Maine show Texas Sen. Ted Cruz...

    There has been some confusion about statements made by Ben Jealous, former president and CEO of the NAACP, on his February 10 appearance on The Rachel Maddow Show. Here is the video clip and text transcript of that night's appearance. MADDOW: In the Democratic presidential field, as the two Democratic candidates are about to leave states where the electorate was 91 percent and 93 percent white respectively, they're headed into much more diverse states. The Democratic candidates now are fighting tooth and nail not only to try to appeal to minority voters and specifically to African-American Democratic voters, they are...

    This clip confirms the extent to which condescension on the left has replaced efforts to convince those skeptical of the medical communitys assessment of Ebolas communicability of their error. In an appearance on CNN on Thursday, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) sought to assure the viewing audience that everyone (including, presumably, the Democratic governors of California, New Hampshire, and New York) is overreacting to the threat of Ebola. When probed by anchor Carol Costello as to why the presidents freshly appointed Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, has not come out publicly and assured the nation that there is no medical need to...

    The Bemidji Pioneer ^ | October 11, 2014 | David M. Shribman, executive editor, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    WATERVILLE, Maine With three weeks remaining before the critical midterm congressional elections, the character of American politics for the next two years and for the presidential campaign that will begin in earnest next month is unusually uncertain. In fact, the contours of our national civic life are more undefined than they have been since the overtime election of 2000 a period of ambiguity no one is eager to repeat. So, as the election nears, the American political landscape can be described as a combination of enthusiasm and ennui that defies clear definition. In fact, enthusiasm and ennui are...

Administered by the Maine Republican Liberty Caucus, caucus attendees paid $1 for a ballot that listed 20 potential GOP presidential candidates names plus room for write-ins, according to Maine RLC State Chair Vic Berardelli. Balloters were asked to mark their first, second and third choice. Points were weighted at five points for a first place vote, three points for second and one point for a third place vote....

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is the first Republican supporter of a bill that would allow U.S. citizens to bring their foreign same-sex partners to the country for legal residency. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Collins (R-Maine) will introduce the bill, which Leahy has introduced every year since 2003 and insisted should be part of any immigration reform deal. More than two dozen countries recognize same-sex couples for immigration purposes, Collins said. This important civil rights legislation would help prevent committed, loving families from being forced to choose between leaving their family or leaving their country. Leahy said...

    After Democrats threw their biggest names into the mix for Olympia Snowes soon-to-be vacated U.S. Senate seat earlier this week, Republicans were the newsmakers on Friday. Five members of the GOP took out petitions for a Senate run, joining previously declared Republican candidate Scott DAmboise in the race. Secretary of State Charlie Summers became the first Republican to take out petitions after Snowe announced Tuesday that she would not seek a fourth term. Treasurer Bruce Poliquin followed close behind Friday afternoon, then former Maine Senate President Rick Bennett and state Sen. Debra Plowman. Attorney General William Schneider joined the race...

    Maine Sen. Olympia Snowes announcement on Tuesday that she will not seek re-election after more than three decades on Capitol Hill certainly sent shockwaves across Washington, D.C. What does it exactly mean to LGBT-friendly Republicans? Snowe is among the six Republicans in the U.S. Senate who voted for a bill that repealed the militarys ban on openly gay and lesbian servicemembers. She is also a co-sponsor of the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act. The vast majority of her Republican colleagues were obviously unwilling to meet her in the middle on these issues.

    By now, it is clear that the Maine caucuses were a complete mess. Evidence is mounting that Mitt Romney's 194-vote victory over Ron Paul was prematurely announced, if not totally wrong. Washington County canceled their caucus on Saturday on account of three inches of snow (hardly a blizzard by Maine standards), and other towns that scheduled their caucuses for this week have been left out of the vote count. Now, it looks like caucuses that did take place before Feb. 11 have also been left out of final tally. As the full extent of the chaos unfolds, sources close to...

In Maine, Romney won with 39.2 percent of the vote, less than four points ahead of Ron Paul. The principal not-Romneys Paul and Rick Santorum took 53 percent of the roughly 5,600 nonbinding votes cast, about 2 percent of the states Republican electorate. Romneys numbers were similar in the CPAC poll, in which he grabbed 38 percent of...

    As it turns out, Maine Republicans in a few towns will caucus this Saturday (January 28). The original plan I spoke with the Maine Republican Party about back in September revolved around the idea of holding caucuses within a window from February 4 and February 11 with a big reveal on that final date. That is still mostly true as most of the caucus venues will hold party meetings within that window. However, there are a few caucuses that branch out quite far from those two bookend dates. The collective caucus Lincoln, Lowell, Burlington, Chester, Enfield, Winn and Howland will...

    It is beginning to look like the GOP has declared open season on Mama Grizzlies- or at least one Mama Grizzly. Many Republicans are losing their willingness to stay silent about Sarah Palin, and the latest is Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins who has always been a moderate politically. New Englands Republicans have been reluctant to cater to the Tea Party because it is not a very strong movement in the region. Vermonts Tea Party rallies have attracted around a hundred people, for instance. Senator Collins feels that former Governor Palin cost the Republicans control of the Senate with her...

    Insanity is when you continue to do the same thing and expect different results.

If Maine really wanted the millions in funds that come with the Race to the Top program, why is it not publicized that one of the qualifications is to have charter schools? The teachers union opposes charter schools and the Democrats agree. Why are Maines health insurance rates so high? Maine Republicans have repeatedly proposed corrective measures, only to be voted down....

    Olympia Snowe said today that her Republican colleagues' pending "no" votes on Sonia Sotomayor raise "a serious concern" about alienating their Hispanic constituencies. The Maine moderate was among the first GOP lawmakers to say she would vote yes, joining Mel Martinez of Florida and Richard Lugar of Indiana on July 17. Snowe told reporters that voting for Sotomayor "would have certainly been an avenue for appealing to the Hispanic community, where we did poorly in the last election. I think we can ill afford to lose their support in the future when we're attempting to rebuild the Republican Party nationally,"...

    WASHINGTON Neither congressional race in Maine this year will feature a contested primary, since the filing deadline passed Monday for Democratic Reps. Tom Allen and Mike Michaud and their Republican challengers. But Michaud's 2nd Congressional District race in northern Maine could still become a three-way contest if a prospective candidate runs as an independent. Allen, of Portland, who is in his fourth term, faces a challenge from Charles Summers, who spent eight years as state director for U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine. Allen, a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, has won previous contests easily, with 64 percent...

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...

Please email this link to every person on you email contact list. We need to get as many people as possible to see these ads. They are...

    PERRY, Maine Kevin Raye, the Republican nominee in the 2002 race for Congress in the Second District, said Tuesday he does not intend to seek the seat this year, leaving the party without an announced candidate in the race.

"Theyre...
