Romney wins Maine caucus

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the Maine caucus on Saturday, with 39 percent of the vote. Texas Rep. Ron Paul received 36 percent; former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum got 18 percent, and former House speaker Newt Gingrich received 6 percent. 

“I thank the voters of Maine for their support,” Romney said in a statement. “I’m committed to turning around America. And I’m heartened to have the support of so many good people in this great state.

“We stand for conservative principles, liberty and prosperity. All of these are under threat. I’m in this race because I believe that America can be turned around, that we don’t have to accept unemployment over 8 percent, a national debt that is as large as our entire economy, and a President who, even as his own policies fail, apologizes for America’s past successes. We’ve had enough. It’s time to reverse Barack Obama’s legacy of domestic disarray and foreign-policy weakness.”

The next contests will be on February 28 when Arizona and Michigan hold their nominating contests.
