Ron Paul supporters take over Maine’s GOP convention

in Uncategorized by

Supporters of Ron Paul “commandeered the Maine Republican Party convention Saturday as part of a multi-state strategy designed to give him a voice at the national GOP convention in Tampa,” the Portland Press Herald reports via The Political Wire.

“Paul’s backers took control of key parliamentary positions and the convention agenda. The effort was part of the Paul campaign’s national effort to overtake Republican state conventions and win enough state delegates to send Paul to the national convention.”

The AP reports the same thing happened in Nevada.
