We like to do things are own way in Maine, and presidential caucus' are no exception. On Saturday, Maine began a weeklong nominating process that will culminate on Feb. 11 with an event in Portland that awards Maine's delegates to the most popular candidate.
According to Poltico  the Maine contest is down to Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Paul campaigned across the state the weekend before, while Romney enjoys support based partly on his time serving as the governor of Massachusetts. The Maine GOP  Web site has caucus info for towns across the state. Also, listen to Downeast.com blogger Al Diamon on NPR  talking about the state's wacky voting system.
