    Romney Takes Early Lead in Maine GOP Caucuses

    OH HOW I WISH THIS WOULD HAPPEN FOR ROMNEY ALL OVER THE US COME SUPER TUESDAY

    Romney Takes Early Lead in Maine GOP Caucuses
    by Associated Press
    Saturday, February 2, 2008

    AUGUSTA, Maine — Mitt Romney took an early lead in presidential preference voting by Maine Republicans as the first returns were counted Saturday from the party’s municipal caucuses, which GOP officials said were heavily attended across the state.

    Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, had 59 percent of the vote with 3 percent of the towns holding caucuses reporting. Ron Paul trailed with 19 percent, John McCain had 18 percent, and Mike Huckabee and undecided votes each had about 2 percent.

    The nonbinding votes, the first step toward electing 18 Maine delegates to the Republican National Convention, were taking place in public schools, Grange halls, fire stations and town halls across the state.

    Despite a sleet storm the night before that left much of the state coated with slush and ice, cars jammed the parking lot outside an Augusta elementary school where Kennebec County municipalities were caucusing.

    Signs promoting the candidates were jabbed in snowbanks, and inside the school gym speeches were being given on behalf of candidates as around 300 party members listened and occasionally broke into cheers.

    Kim Pettengill, who has been a party activist for more than three decades, said Saturday’s was the largest Kennebec County caucus turnout since 1980, the year Ronald Reagan won his first GOP nomination for president.

    Party Executive Director Julie O’Brien said other counties reported similarly heavy turnouts.

    Republican caucuses were being held in about 410 Maine municipalities, most on Saturday. A few dozen towns, especially in northern Maine’s Aroostook County, held caucuses Friday, and a few more were set for Sunday and later this month.

    The Maine Democrats hold their presidential preference votes at municipal caucuses on Feb. 10.
