Maine Republicans to recount caucus votes

in Uncategorized by

The Maine Republican Party “is reviewing its numbers from the presidential caucuses as pressure grows for a recount,” the Portland Press Herald reports.

“An email sent to county and town chairman this afternoon asks the local officials to resubmit vote totals to the state headquarters… The email does not say when, or whether, state GOP officials will publicly correct or update the results that have been posted on the party’s website since Saturday, when Mitt Romney was declared the winner over Ron Paul by less than 200 votes. Those official results were inaccurate because several communities that submitted vote totals were left out.”
