EAST MACHIAS, Maine -- Ron Paul gained ground yet failed to overtake Mitt Romney in Saturday's Republican presidential caucus in eastern Maine, which was held a week after the state Republican Party declared Romney the winner of Maine's GOP caucuses.
Paul gained 83 votes on Romney as a standing-room crowd packed Washington Academy, where Republicans from more than two dozen towns gathered to cast their votes. Paul received 163 votes to Romney's 80. Rick Santorum got 57 votes and Newt Gingrich received four votes.
