That's the headline from the Portland Press Herald.
AUGUSTA — The second day of the Maine Republican State Convention is coming to an end, but the controversy continues.
Organizers at the Augusta Civic Center on Sunday said presidential candidate Ron Paul has won 22 state delegates that will go to the national GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., and fellow candidate Mitt Romney has won zero.
The results were based on voting Saturday night and Sunday.
Didn't see this posted...
My brother will be at the convention this weekend. He will be sending me text messages during the Convention to keep us all up to date.
Hopefully others will share their updates here as well........
Update #1 Just arrived at the center and I am currently standing on the Convention floor. It's going to a wild time. I will be here bright and early Saturday morning!!
Friends, I will be live streaming Ron Paul's address to the Nevada GOP Convention tomorrow, May 5th. I created a ustream account to accomplish this:

Breaking! The Patriots of Nevada Deliver. Ron Paul Delegates Win 25 of 28 Seats to Republican National Convention!Submitted by bobspirit on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 15:43
In a contentious and hardfought 20 hour marathon spanning 2 days the patriots of Nevada prevailed and put Ron Paul supporters in 25 of the 28 seats allocated to Nevada for the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
Included in those seats are the new national committee man and committee woman, both liberty lovers and supporters of Ron Paul.
This is an awesome against the odds victory as Romney captured a sizable majority of popular votes in the state caucus in February.
I can tell you from personal experience as a delegate to this state convention that liberty is alive and well in Nevada, and represented by an amazing group of dedicated and committed patriots.

In 2008 during the Republican presidential primary race, supporters of Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul would scream out, “Ron Paul!” Others would then reply, “Revolution!” (It’s not quite as good as my fellow Missouri Tigers when we yell, “M-I-Z!”, with a response of “Z-O-U!”) I must admit I don’t recall the revolutionaries screaming out that same Ron Paul chant this cycle. But while Paul has not won a single state so far this primary season, his followers could still make an impact.

Guess who is Catching on Folks 8)
21 of 24 delegates and all 21 alternates for Paul, three super-delegates of course are Romney's. We also won National Committeeman and Committeewoman and Presidential Electors.
Ten of the 13 have expressed public support for Paul, such as by donating money or volunteering for his campaign.

From Ben Swann WXIX facebook:
"Tonight's Reality Check (it will be posted here tonight) will be epic. I am going to show you how the RNC is breaking its own rules by giving money to the Romney campaign... Plus, something you won't see anywhere else. Why all these "bound" delegates from across the country may NOT be bound at all. How the race for the Republican nomination is barely getting started. Tonight!"
Update. I'm excited to announce that Nate will be traveling with me to Tampa for the Ron Paul rally and the convention. For those who support our work, I'm asking for donations to help fund our trip. Please see examples of Nate's work, below. Previously, I've been the videographer for the Ron Paul Blimp project in 07/08 and a video director for Revolution PAC. You can check out the project along with examples of our work here:
(see link below if you are not on Facebook)
Let me know what you think. Thanks.
I'm working out some free music downloads as gifts for those who donate $25 along with posters of Nate's work. Learn more here: http://iroots.org/donate/
*We will make many of our photos in Tampa available for Liberty groups to use freely and I expect a documentary to come of this including past videos I've directed, like this:
One of the most gifted photographers I know, Nate Vigeant--who will soon be living in Los Angeles--photographed Dr. Paul’s recent event at UC Davis. You’ll want to check out all of his work here:

I was there...great crowd, awesome speech. We are winning hearts and minds people!!! The rally seemed bigger than Berkeley!
Today is the anniversary of the Kent State Massacre. 42 Years ago today 4 student-protesters were murdered by the US government for practicing the first amendment. They were unarmed, and many of the injured bystanders. 4 innocent kids murdered, RIP.
Front page Fox article on Ron Paul's new tactic: Hijacking the GOP.
If he has no shot at winning, why are they tripping over themselves about his delegate wins? It's funny how they spin everything, in the article it mentions he could win a chunk of Iowa's delegates...if 20 out of 28 is only a chunk, then they are right. That's just ONE example. Furthermore, this isn't a new plan...he's been telling them all along this was his plan, and they just responded to him during interviews with condecending looks like he was a loon and it would never work.
Once again...Paul was right.
