[quote:calin:MV8xNzg2NjYyXzI5NjkyMzIwXzg5N0QwQkYw] Quoted from one of the posters (Leo) Submitted by esquire415 on Sat, 02/18/2012 - 16:44. The "beauty contest" is the ONLY thing the general public and the taking heads care about. Without wins there, it pushes him back even further in the realm of public opinion, and lowers his chances of winning in the future races. If we're in this to WIN, it needs to be more than mere delegates. A delegate-only win would seem, to most voters, as a betrayal (even though it IS officially how the party nominates). Think of it this way, your state votes heavily for Romney, but most of the delegates go to Ron Paul at the convention. You'd feel a bit betrayed by your delegates and then loathe Ron Paul as if he cheated (which he didn't do). If he truly wants to change people's minds, an outright WIN must occur somewhere. I'm all for the brokered convention, but knowing the dirty tricks the GOP has already pulled in this race, they will pull out ALL the stops in Tampa to keep him from winning. A few state victories would help quell that. Plus, a few 1st place wins in the "beauty contests" would shoot him to the front of the pack, and people would then truly consider him as a contender. Then he'd have no problem marching to an overwhelming nomination. http://www.dailypaul.com/214668/maine-caucus-saturday-open-thread [/quote]

BDN reporter Tom Walsh is covering the final GOP caucuses in Maine today as Republicans in Washington County and parts of Hancock County declare their preference for a presidential nominee.
BDNPolitics RT @fivethirtyeight: Bangor Daily News (@BDNPolitics) reports 135 attendees for a caucus in Hancock Co. ME. That's a very good turnout relative to population.
BDNPolitics Once the Hancock caucus results are in, we'll move to East Machias. The caucus there starts at 1:30. #mepolitics
