Poised to take over one third of state delegates, beating McCain and closely trailing Romney

Despite the mainstream media having solely focused on the presidential preference poll in Maine last weekend, which placed Ron Paul in third place, the facts reveal that the Congressman actually beat John McCain and finished in second place in the race to secure delegates to the state convention.

"The Maine preference poll is purely a beauty contest, and in the actual election of state delegates the so-called “frontrunner” McCain is far behind Ron Paul." a campaign press release stated last night.

Ron Paul is primed to finish second with likely 35% of the total delegates.

At 4:34pm est yesterday, the Maine Republican Party website posted figures showing that only 154 votes separate Ron Paul and McCain, with just over 25% of the caucus locations still to report in.

As Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton explained in the press release, there is now no way for McCain to catch Ron Paul in the state delegate count, based on the caucus locations Paul has already won:

Delegates to the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis are elected by the state delegates. Internal results from 10 of 16 counties, including the largest cities of Portland, South Portland, Lewiston, Auburn, Augusta, Waterville, Bangor, and Brewer, show Ron Paul picking up 215 of 608 State Convention delegates so far reported, or 35%.

"Ron Paul's strong second place finish in Maine, in which he beat John McCain, is proof that this race is far from over," said Ron Paul campaign manager Lew Moore. "We'll continue to battle for every delegate in this wide-open race for the Republican nomination." the statement concludes.

Dr. Paul was the only candidate who personally campaigned in Maine and as a consequence the Congressman drew impassioned support from local groups and businesses in the area.

The corporate media, once again blind to the facts, has declared that Mitt Romney took all 18 Maine National Delegates when In actual fact, the allocation of the 18 national delegates will be decided by the non-binding state delegates on May 2 at the Maine Republican Party State Convention.

Today the Republican GOP nominations will simultaneously hold primaries and caucuses in 21 different states including Utah, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, New Jersey, California, Alabama, West Virginia, North Dakota, Montana, Missouri, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Illinois, Delaware, Connecticut, Colorado, Arkansas, Arizona and Alaska.

The total size of delegations for "Super Tuesday" is 1,081 for all 21 states.

Going into the most important day in the race yet, the fact that Ron Paul is now picking up second place in some states is extremely encouraging for the campaign.
