AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Maine republicans gave a win to Mitt Romney over the weekend, as he took 39 percent of the votes in the Maine Caucus Presidential Poll, but supporters of Ron Paul are crying foul... saying the votes hasn't all been counted.
The caucuses were held from February 4th to the 11th, and the results were announced Saturday night. But Washington County had a snowstorm Saturday and postponed its caucuses until the 18th.
The party didn't wait for the Downeast vote, and declared Romney the winner in Maine.
Ron Paul's people say the party should have waited until Washington County voted. Paul Madore, State Chairman of the Ron Paul Campaign, says Paul has lots of support in Washington County, and says he should win the county's caucuses.
But state GOP Chairman Charlie Webster says he does not believe Paul could oversome the current 200-vote difference between him and Romney. Webster says everyone knew the rules, and knew that votes cast after Feb. 11 would not count in the presidential poll.
Washington County GOP Chairman Chris Gardner says he thinks the state party should have announced what it had Saturday night, but waited for this weekend's results to announce a final winner.
