Heads Up maine!Submitted by puckett6000 on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 12:10
Talked with Matt McDonald a delegate getting ready for this weekend's Maine GOP Convention. He shared this email with me that was sent out by Charlie Webster (the State Chairman who announced Romney had won Maine with 3 counties yet to vote). The email notifies delegates that the Maine leadership has "invited" Charles L. Cragin to preside as chairman over the Maine State Convention. I'm sure that Mr. Cragin is a wonderful man but surely Mr. Webster means "temporary chair" because wouldn't the chairman have to be nominated and voted on from the floor?
Below is the first part of that email.. thanks Matt for sending this over.
Judge Cragin Invited to Chair
Maine GOP Convention
(Augusta, ME) Charles L. Cragin of Raymond, Maine, the former Chief Judge of the U.S. Board of Veterans' Appeals, has been invited to preside at the Maine Republican State Convention being held in Augusta on May 5-6. "We are pleased and honored that Judge Cragin has agreed to serve as Chairman of the convention", said Charles W. Webster, Chairman of the Maine Republican Party. "Judge Cragin has a reputation for fairness, objectivity and integrity. He presided at several Maine GOP conventions prior to going to the Board of Veterans' Appeals in Washington and we are delighted to have him serve in that capacity once again", Webster added.
