    AUGUSTA — The second day of the Maine Republican State Convention is coming to an end, but the controversy continues.

    Organizers at the Augusta Civic Center on Sunday said presidential candidate Ron Paul has won 22 state delegates that will go to the national GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., and fellow candidate Mitt Romney has won zero.

    The results were based on voting Saturday night and Sunday.

    But Paul's victory is likely to be challenged by the Romney campaign, which has dispatched its top lawyer, Benjamin Ginsberg, to Maine. Ginsberg was President George W. Bush's lawyer during the 2000 Florida recount.

    Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster said this morning that the Romney campaign will contest the results and attempt to have them thrown out. The Romney campaign will argue that the vote didn’t take place in an open forum, Webster said

    NV was proportionally allocated so while it's all Paul supporters in the delegate slots, some of them are bound to Romney.

    I got a reason to post in Paul thread, I find him to be relevant.

    What's your excuse?

    They used to say "as Maine goes so goes the Nation". They don't say that anymore.
