Romney declared to be victor in Maine
Mitt Romney appears to have taken the lightly-contested Maine caucuses today.
Per AP, with 57 percent of towns reporting, Romney had 52 percent of the vote to McCain’s 22 percent and Ron Paul’s 19.
Romney’s camp has already issued a release claiming victory.
Other than Ron Paul, no GOP candidates made it Down East. Romney’s eldest son, Tagg, did however brave the elements to deliver the “w” for dad.
McCain didn’t put much of a financial effort into the state, but he did have the support of the state’s two Republican senators, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, who spoke for him today.
In other news from states nobody knew were having a contest, McCain last night was officially declared the winner of the January 22nd Louisiana caucuses.
Update: AP has made it official.
