Remember the Maine (caucuses)

Falling as they did between the recent high-profile Florida contest and Super (Duper) Tuesday, the Maine Republican caucuses did not generate much press, though I did mention them here.

Unsurprisingly, Mitt Romney placed first in the caucuses, followed by John McCain, Ron Paul, and Mike Huckabee. Though the Maine caucuses are non-binding, presumptive nominee McCain should not pop the corks just yet; the Associated Press projects that Romney will take all 18 of the state’s pledged delegates, as chosen later at the state Republican convention, by virtue of the former Massachusetts’ governor’s convincing win yesterday.
