Ron Paul Beats McCain in Maine Caucus, Primed to Win Over 1/3 of State Delegates (2/4/08)


In the race for delegates, Ron Paul appears to closely trail Romney for first place

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 4, 2008

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – While most reports about this past weekend’s Maine Caucus focused on the purely symbolic presidential preference poll, in the meaningful race to secure delegates to the state convention Ron Paul is primed to finish second with likely 35 percent of the total delegates.

Delegates to the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis are elected by the state delegates. Internal results from 10 of 16 counties, including the largest cities of Portland, South Portland, Lewiston, Auburn, Augusta, Waterville, Bangor, and Brewer, show Ron Paul picking up 215 of 608 State Convention delegates so far reported, or 35%.

“Ron Paul’s strong second place finish in Maine, in which he beat John McCain, is proof that this race is far from over,” said Ron Paul campaign manager Lew Moore. “We’ll continue to battle for every delegate in this wide-open race for the Republican nomination.”

In the presidential preference poll, with 70 percent reporting, Ron Paul is in third place just two percentage points behind John McCain. However, the Maine preference poll is purely a beauty contest, and in the actual election of state delegates the so-called “frontrunner” McCain is far behind Ron Paul.

Remember folks, this is the plan from now until September, collect delagates. No bullshit about 3rd party or any other crap. Focus on delagates until September.

I did not find the press release yet, and now the Ron Paul site is down. Maybe momentarily? This will be an interesting thing for me, to see how long it take the press release to reach news.google.com and search for Ron Paul.

The message coming out of MSM faxes. "NOT APPROVED FOR RELEASE" continue lying to the American public.

Sorry about the link. I think it was old news anyway. Either that or the media is trying to cover up by distorting the facts (I know it's unbelievable:D)!

Are the national delegates chosen from the state delegates? I.E the state GOP aren't the one determining who is viable to be a national delegate, and that the delegates are distributed proportionally?

I know all the reporting isn't in yet, but does anyone have the latest breakdowns of delegates? I thought RP might get first in delegates but I'd at least like to see how close it is between him and Romney.

Now we are working on Maine GOP Executive Director, Julie Anne O'Brien (her phone number is right on the Maine GOP website) to get this nonsense being reported by CNN, the NYT, etc. rescinded.

She said she would to me on the phone, but we need to hold her accountable, if it doesn't happen.

Of course, the damage in voter perception has largely already been done....But we should still correct it, and do our best to spread THE TRUTH over the internet and talk radio!

I am however happy Ron Paul beat out Mccain. It's a shame they are planning to not report it :mad:
