LAKE JACKSON, Texas (BUSINESS WIRE) – Tonight the campaign of 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul sent an email to supporters regarding today’s caucus results from the state of Maine. See below for a portion of comments from Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Manager John Tate.
“Ron Paul will win the most delegates out of Maine tonight.
“In fact, he will probably even win the ‘beauty contest’ straw poll the media has already called for Mitt Romney – even before all the votes have been tallied.
“In Washington County – where Ron Paul was incredibly strong – the caucus was delayed until next week just so the votes wouldn’t be reported by the national media today.
“Of course, their excuse for the delay was ‘snow.’
“That’s right. A prediction of 3-4 inches – that turned into nothing more than a dusting -was enough for a local GOP official to postpone the caucuses just so the results wouldn’t be reported tonight.
“This is MAINE we’re talking about. The GIRL SCOUTS had an event today in Washington County that wasn’t cancelled!
“And just the votes of Washington County would have been enough to put us over the top.
“This is an outrage. But our campaign is in this race to win, and will stay in it to the very end.
“Congressman Paul’s message of liberty and Constitutional principles is resonating with Americans everywhere who are sick and tired of the status quo establishment, and we plan to take this campaign on to ‘Super Tuesday’ and beyond.”

Okay we all knew when Washington county was canceled things were starting to get fishy yet again.
However, Washington and a few others places WILL caucus. So, after we make up the small 194 vote distance we have behind Romney, IT IS OUR JOB TO PROMOTE OUR WIN IN MAINE!!! NO ONE IS TAKING THIS WIN AWAY FROM US!!
I am not going to let the GOP or whoever else is pulling these strings to take this away from Ron after he has given 30 years of his life fighting for THE SAME values. NO!!! We will win MAINE. Mark my words, this is not over! They are so afraid of us it is almost comical. The only thing keeping me from laughing is my anger. They will regret messing with us one way or the other. Either we win, or the GOP will lose. We have the power in our hands. I swear we will not let whoever the GOP chooses win this. We have came way too far to lose in this handicapped fight. If they want to cheat, it will be at their own peril.
Politico: Romney's campaign might be involved in cancelling the caucus that Paul is doing well with only 80% reported!Submitted by ChiasmataX on Sat, 02/11/2012 - 20:40
In particular, a senior Paul aide had suggested that the Romney campaign was involved in the cancellation of Washington County’s caucuses, a small county where Paul’s campaign had expected to do well. “It’s not completely insidious, but they knew we were going to swamp it up there,” said Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton.
The state GOP said that the caucuses were cancelled due to inclement weather.
Thanks for the video link, VoteRonPaul2012
There are still caucuses to be held..if you have not attended your caucus yet do not let the outcome of today discourage you. That is exactly their plan !!!!
They want you to give up out of frustration.
Who wins the vote in Maine is not as important as who has the delegates. And we are winning that battle in every state so far that has had a caucus. Iowa just elected a Ron Paul supporter as the GOP chairman, the only way that happened was because of the overwhelming number of Ron Paul delegates in Iowa.
It is VERY important that we have the most delegates we can get coming out of Maine to the national convention.
Maine's delegates are NOT bound and are considered Super Delegates at the national convention. THIS IS KEY !!!
So do not be discouraged..get those delegate positions for Ron Paul and round up as many Ron Paul supporters as you can to attend the remaining caucuses.

It will be far more productive for my work at Fox and the work of my friends and colleagues here--many of whom share our values--if the email traffic to Fox toned down considerably. I will continue to voice the message of freedom in many more Fox venues, and you will hear that message, and we will do our best to alert you in advance of those venues and the times that I will be on them; and we will post those alerts right here on this site. PLEASE BE SURE TO WATCH THE FINAL FreedomWatch SHOW ON MONDAY FEBRUARY 13TH, ON FOX BUSINESS AT 8:00 PM, EASTERN TIME. You have been very strong in your views and generous in your comments about the show, but now is the time to relax and lay low and prepare for the future. God bless each of you
Hello, I am a Chinese. I would like to share my thoughts with you why American needs Ron Paul as president and why the world needs Ron Paul as American President.
First of all, Dr. Paul has a correct view of the relationship between China and America. Dr. Paul recognized China as an excellent trade partner, and says American should not blame China for Americans’ own mistakes. Thank you Dr. Paul for acknowledging this. Yes, China takes some advantage of American’s policy loopholes and many other mistakes. But the Americans’ crony corporatism took a much bigger advantage of their own people. To solve the China problem, Americans need a leader who is intelligent and dare to challenge the status quo!
To trade with China is uniting the world. As truthful as in the feudal society, to achieve peace, countries trade with each other and their prince and princess got married. If American can trade with Qatar, why they don’t trade with Cuba and even Iraq and Afghanistan? Get the troops back and make a health environment for the world! American needs a leader who can deliver the message of peace to the whole world!
