GOP tells Maine to split the Paul delegatesSubmitted by ralph hornsby on Wed, 08/22/2012 - 17:10
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine’s Republican chairman says the national party has made a decision on the contested seating of the state’s Ron Paul delegates at next week’s national convention.
Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster says the national party’s Committee on Contests on Wednesday determined that party rules were broken when a slate of 20 Ron Paul delegates was elected at the state convention in May. Webster says the committee is now telling Paul supporters and mainstream Republicans who challenged them they can each pick 10 delegates.
If they don't, the Republican National Committee will make the choices for them.
