Ron Paul's Maine delegates reject compromise as GOP convention nears
By Kevin Miller Washington bureau chief
WASHINGTON — Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul have rejected a compromise from the Maine Republican Party chairman, raising the stakes in a political showdown that could see the state lose its coveted delegate seats during the upcoming Republican National Convention.
Later this week, Republican leaders from around the country will meet in Washington, D.C., to consider what role, if any, Maine's 24-member delegation will play at the GOP convention, which starts Aug. 27 in Tampa.
