In a nutshell, the rp supporters began showing up at 6 am, and the line wrapped around the building well before 7. Charlie was up to a trick or two (I don't understand a lot of the process, but they were trying to recount votes 3 times or more, elect rp delegates that were already on the slate -which would have broken a rule, etc.). The elected chairman secretary was a rp supporter who won by 30 votes. The convention chair, a rp supporter was ELECTED BY 4 VOTES. Over 1,000 voted. If that doesn't tell every one of us who are a delegate/alternate that it's not important to show up and give it all we can, I don't know what does. The convention chair, another Brent (ie Missouri), is on top of his game with Robert's Rules. I believe they elect delegates in the am. So proud of the Mainers efforts today. And please if you haven't signed waved, or canvassed, or wear a t-shirt, hand out superbrochures, donate, whatever, please do. With some effort we can do this!
