The Ron Paul movement are now getting a fairer Caucus in Maine, nearly a week after the initial results were incorrectly given.
The Maine GOP has announced they will recount all the current votes from last Saturday and will recommend that Washington County votes are included as well.
Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster said;
“The results of the Washington County caucus will be reviewed at the March 10 Republican State Committee meeting,”
“The executive committee voted unanimously to recommend to the state committee that they include the results in the final tally for the presidential preference poll as their caucus had been scheduled to occur by the February 11 deadline, however it was postponed due to inclement weather.”
“We have worked diligently to contact town chairmen throughout Maine to reconfirm the results of their individual caucuses. These totals, once confirmed, will be posted on the Maine Republican Party website,”
“All Republicans are keenly aware of the intense interest in the results of the Maine Republican Party presidential preference poll,” the statement continued. “In fact, I have had numerous conversations with Senate President Kevin Raye and Washington County Commissioner Chris Gardner regarding their concerns that the Washington County poll results be included in our final tally.”
“As a result of these conversations I called a meeting of the executive committee to discuss this matter.”
While this is a small victory, it is still not a completely fair results and will only be such when 100% of the votes cast are counted together and an apology is issued to Ron Paul for the mess.
If the recount is fair and honestly carried out then congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard to get what was right and just.
