Maine Caucuses Begin, to Run for Full Week

Saturday, 04 Feb 2012 07:43 PM

 Overshadowed by Nevada, the Maine’s caucuses also began Saturday, Politico reports.

Most of Maine’s caucuses will be held on Saturday, but they continue through next week and the results won’t be announced until Saturday, Feb. 11.

But it's a straw poll, for the most part, because delegates aren’t awarded until the state convention in May, Politico reports.

So far, the only Republican hopeful to have visited Maine this cycle is Ron Paul. Paul and Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who won the state four years ago, are considered the heavy favorites.

Maine Republicans say it’s a two-man race between Paul and Romney, Politico says. Charlie Webster, chairman of the Maine Republican Party, said Romney is an established brand in the state, with a reputation boosted by his tenure as governor of nearby Massachusetts.
