The Maine Delegation to the RNC is being contested. Here is the email I received.
Dear Maine resident:
Pursuant to RNC Rule 22 and the Procedures for Contests adopted by the RNC Committee on Contests, please find attached the Notice of Contest to your right to be seated as a Delegate or Alternate Delegate at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
A copy of the attached Notice has also been sent to you and the Secretary of the RNC via registered mail.
Peter Cianchette, Contestant
Cianchette served two terms as a Maine State Representative (1996–2000) from South Portland and Cape Elizabeth and was the Republican candidate in Maine's 2002 gubernatorial election, making a credible showing. He served on the National Republican Committee and as the Maine General Chairman of the Bush-Cheney 2004 re-election campaign.
Cianchette was appointed ambassador by President Bush and sworn in on May 8, 2008. He presented his credentials on June 12, 2008 and served until June 19, 2009. He was the 56th person to hold the position.
