Mitt Romney wins the Maine GOP caucuses, with 39% of the vote, beating Ron Paul into second place with 36%.

The former Massachusetts governor comes off an embarrassing trio of losses Tuesday, but he was already ahead in the delegate race. Before the Maine results CNN estimated he had 115 out of 1,144 needed to win the nomination to challenge President Barack Obama.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich did not actively compete in the state’s caucuses.

The caucuses were mostly held between February 4 and 11; at stake were 21 delegates, to be committed proportionally. The results were compiled by the Maine Republican Party and kept secret until tonight. [CNN]

Ron Paul spoke and said that his campaign is about “freedom and liberty.” By that he means every individual is free to live himself and maintain the fruits of their labor and makes an emphasis on property rights, as in deciding who can and cannot enter your Woolworths and sit at the counter and be served. How can Ron and Rand deny that those newsletters under Ron Paul’s name, MUST HAVE BEEN RACIST AS CHARGED! I wonder if supporters of Ron Paul know what he REALLY stands for.  Do they really want to reverse time and take the country back to the 1700s or 1800s?  Personally, I’ll die before I’ll be a slave…and then you can bury me in my grave!
