GOP rejects Maine delegates; Governor LePage won’t attend national convention
(source: Bangor Daily News - bangordailynews.com)


Gov. Paul LePage will not attend the Republican National Convention next week after a GOP committee Friday overwhelmingly rejected Maine’s delegates to the convention in Tampa, Fla. The ousted delegates supported Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who long ago gave up his presidential bid but who had enthusiastic followers in Maine and several other states.

Most of Maine delegates chosen at the state convention were Paul supporters. The RNC instead has chosen a slate of delegates split between the libertarian congressman and Mitt Romney.

Mark Willis, one of the Ron Paul delegates elected at the state convention, said Friday that the RNC credentialing committee decided at about noontime to uphold a recommendation released by the larger RNC Committee on Contests on Wednesday.

LePage’s decision not to attend the convention mirrored what he has said in the past he would do if all Maine’s delegates chosen at the state convention were not seated.


The GOP is a fractured party. They will do everything within their power to ensure only their anointed candidate get the nomination, no matter how the votes fall.

Forget what you voted for. It doesn't matter because they will select your delegates for you.
It's what you should have voted for so just be happy that they are helping you out.

It's just more proof to what I have been saying for a long time.

Your votes DO NOT count.

It does NOT matter which candidate you vote for, the person they want in, will get in.

As much as I don't want to agree with you,,,,,,,,,,,,,,you are absolutely right! No difference in partys and no true representation for "We the People"!

The United States of America is under seige by bankers and corporations!
