Remember Maine? Charlie Webster is OUT!

AUGUSTA, MAINE — Officials with the Maine Republican Party met this morning to choose new leadership. Outgoing party chair Charlie Webster announced he would not seek another term as chair shortly after last month's election.

During Webster's tenure, Maine Republicans gained control of both houses of the state legislature for the first time since 1974. They also elected Republican Paul LePage as governor. However on November 6, Democrats gained majorities in both houses.

Webster also came under fire during the Maine presidential caucuses from supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Paul supporters claimed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney had been declared winner of the Maine caucus before some caucus goers had the opportunity to caucus.

Sorry, Charlie!

Maine voters wanted politicians with good taste and you didn't even have that.

Seeya!

Adios, you cheating, crooked man. Hopefully there are enough liberty-loving folks in Maine who will keep Cebra's feet to the fire.

That will certainly be our intent.

Unfortunately, there are many here in Maine who despise us.

Beth's choice to stand in unity with the party may turn out to be wise.
I still kind of wish she had pushed for it.

We are a force to be reckoned with and they very well know it.

Beth O'Conner was the one we wanted.

She was even endorsed by Dr. Paul during her re-election bid for state representative.

At least she will have some visibility and input as Vice Chairperson.

I'm afraid Mr. Cebra will be no better than Webster.

Thanks and BUMP

Thanks for the update. BUMP

Yay!

Here's hoping he doesn't get anything cushy after this, and here's hoping that Cebra is a good guy, and best of luck to O'Connell!. Good news all around.

O'Connor, not O'Connell

Don't worry, you're not the first to misspell her name. :)

Webster didn't run again. The establishment person won

not our person, as I understand it.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Seems like none of the state

Seems like none of the state chairmen in many states are running again! The same is true in Iowa and NV. In fact in Iowa and NV they both resigned the day after the primaries!!!

The fraud was too much for them to stay. But their resignations as a concession to the people simply doesn't cut it. I want the whole party : )

GOOD!!!

ASRE *****

How much you wanna bet..

..Charlie Cheater gets some kind of patronage job with the neocons.

What does that mean?

n/t

Rich Cebra is not a bad guy.

In fact, I know many Ron Paul supporters who backed him even when Beth O'Conner announced her run.

From what I've heard of him, he wants to include every facet of the party. I seriously doubt he will do anything to block Ron Paul supporters.

He has a decent record as a legislator as well.

PS: I'm here in Maine btw.

Wait until the Victory 2016 funds start flowing after the 2014

cycle.

He'll sing another tune unless you've literally got him by the b@lls.

And even then he'll cave to TPTB if he knows he's got a golden parachute.

Heed Mark Twain's political advice: You cannot reason with a pig.

Internalize that.

Thank you for this info

Thank you.

gave a negative vote ,great we got vice-chair but looks like establishment shill replaced establishment shill! All i can say is the gop in colorado and across this nation will be held accountable by republicans.

Ron Paul 2016

Why our guy did not win?

You could have stayed neutral and did not use the down or up vote button.

I'm just providing the info -- the good and the bad news.

LL, thanks for keeping us updated on Maine!

At least their new Vice Chair Beth O'Connor is a longtime Ron Paul supporter :-)

A little gain is GOOD news.

Thank you brother in Liberty

This beer is to you!

Gosh, LL. SOMEBODY (somebodies?) is (are??) stalking you!

Enjoy your notoriety, LL! It's much better than being totally ignored ;-)

Every day

I wish they only rated down my comments...instead they rate down ALL stuff I post here.

Enjoy your Sunday my friend.

LOL Noticed that too

DP has been overwrought by a bunch of Negative Nancies of late.

Good riddance

But this is a classic case of too little too late. Won't stop a Charlie Webster clone from taking charge of things.

..so..is this guy Rich Cebra

..so..is this guy Rich Cebra any less corrupt?
