Ron Paul's Chaos
That sums up the Maine State Republican Convention. This was our first convention (Matt, me & my mom) and it was quite eventful! We started about an hour late due to the amount of people that showed up. The voting for the convention committee secretary & chair took about 2 hours! It should have taken about 10 minutes! There were a lot of recounts and questioning. We never did get a straight answer about the number of delegates checked in matching the total # of votes. The question was raised many times! After we ate lunch at Subway and heard more grumblings about the count, we heard from Senator Susan Collins (who was scheduled to speak at 9:45am!).
