Mitt Romney wins Maine caucus, with Ron Paul at his heels
- 39% Mitt Romney’s percentage in the Maine caucus, a momentum-building win after a tough week
- 36% Ron Paul’s second-place percentage; he held tight to Mitt, but his first win again evaded him source
» The other candidates didn’t take part, really: With Rick Santorum scoring 18 percent and Newt bringing up the rear with 6 percent, Mitt’s victory in the non-binding primary wasn’t clean, but it was another win for him. The Maine caucuses are generally ignored by primary-watchers, but gained attention after Mitt kinda blew it earlier in the week.
