County in Maine wants presidential votes included

(CNN) – The Maine caucus presidential vote is non-binding in terms of delegates, but some local Republicans are upset the state party is not including their votes in its total count.

Washington County's 47 towns were set to caucus on the same day as much of Maine last Saturday, but town party officials pushed back the vote a week due to snow.

More questions than answers in GOP race

Washington (CNN) - It's "lull week" in the Republican presidential campaign, an 11-day stretch with no primaries or caucuses and no debates, but lots of questions about who will eventually win the nomination to face President Barack Obama in November.

The topsy-turvy race has seen leaders come and go, with presumptive frontrunner Mitt Romney receiving steady but so far somewhat stagnant support in his second bid for the GOP nod.

Romney wins mask lingering questions about his candidacy

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney's twin victories Saturday in Maine and in a conservative straw poll were badly needed bright spots for his campaign at the end of what was perhaps the most humbling week of his presidential candidacy, a five-day stretch that exposed the former Massachusetts governor's frail relationship with conservatives.

One day after dubbing himself a "severely conservative Republican" in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Romney won a presidential straw poll of conference-goers with 38% of the vote to Santorum's 31%.

Ron Paul forges ahead after finishing second in Maine

(CNN) – Ron Paul said Saturday he would keep up his strategy of campaigning in states holding presidential caucuses after his second-place finish in Maine's contest.

Paul told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that the caucus strategy made sense for his campaign, which has struggled to raise the amounts of money posted by his competitors or the super PACs that support them. He said he would campaign in primary states only if they allocated delegates proportionally instead of winner take all and the cost of campaigning there didn't exceed his budget.

Mitt Romney wins Maine caucuses

Portland, Maine (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney ended what had been the worst week of his campaign with a quick one-two Saturday - winning the Maine caucuses hours after placing first in a closely watched straw poll of conservative leaders and activists.

In Maine, Romney squeaked out a tight win over Texas Rep. Ron Paul in that state's Republican presidential caucuses, taking 39% of the vote to Paul's 36%. He had gone 0-for-3 in Tuesday's contests in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri, which all went to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

Romney does campaign first as Paul hopes for first win in Maine

Portland, Maine (CNN) - Following a trio of embarrassing losses, Mitt Romney did something Saturday that he has not done this election cycle: visiting caucus sites on voting day.

"I want to be your nominee. I want to beat President Obama," he told caucus-goers in Sanford. "I believe I can. I believe I'm the one person in this race who actually can beat this president. I believe it's essential that we beat this president. That we take America back and that we keep America as it's always been - the hope of the earth."
