Mitt Romney appears to have taken the
lightly-contested Maine caucuses today.

52 percent of the vote to McCain's 22 percent and Ron
Romney's camp has already issued a release claiming
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.
