…So let’s pick up, where last we left off!

Jim Fossel ‏ @JWFoss
He’s ready for a #yrnf convention! RT @DSorensenME: Had to bring a gin & tonic to my county caucus.

Wm. Duke Harrington ‏ @DirigoDuke
@cdixon25 What’s the #MEGOPConvo latest?

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
@DirigoDuke We’re in counties right now electing officers. #megop #mepolitics

Gerald Weinand ‏ @DirigoBlue
Tabulating the votes for national delegates will “take some time” and that the result will be posted “on the internet” later #mepolitics

Gerald Weinand ‏ @DirigoBlue
Hopefully they will send me the results or the link #mepolitics

Amy Fried ‏ @ASFried
@DirigoBlue Who is in charge of tabulating the votes for national delegates? Include representatives of the candidates? #mepolitics

Gerald Weinand ‏ @DirigoBlue
That’s a wrap for me for the day Back again tomorrow for more fun at the #MEGOPConvo #mepolitics

Gerald Weinand ‏ @DirigoBlue
@ASFried County chairs and two election clerks (if you will) then turn ballots to convention chair #mepolitics

@cdixon25 First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they cheat, then you win #RonPaul2012 #nvgop #megop

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
12 hours ago now, I was freezing at dawn with a bunch of #RonPaul supporters outside the civic center. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
National delegate voting is FINALLY happening in Androscoggin County. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
Rockin’ the #megop convention with @varsityplayer30. #RonPaul people follow her! 🙂 #mepolitics

Amy Fried ‏ @ASFried
@varsityplayer30 The world is run by the people who are wiling to stay until the end of the meeting. #mepolitics #megop

Avery Day ‏ @averydayME
Cumb cty caucus well run despite fact held in bleachers of civ ctr (very hard to hear the chair) – still waiting for natl balots #megop

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
Voting was supposed to start a while ago, still hasn’t. #mepolitics #megop

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
The #megop convention was supposed to be over hours ago. This is dragging. #mepolitics

Lyle ‏ @Citizensnews
Oh my. @davidheidrich: Some county caucuses refusing to vote for national conv. delegates with new ballots. Oxford has adjourned #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
#MittRomney individual just told Androscoggin County that their votes would be counted as first voted. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
But Androscoggin County hasn’t voted yet. #MittRomney campaign is trying to railroad this vote. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
There is a lot of confusion and a lack of clarity. Nobody really knows what’s going on. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
#Megop should be ashamed of themselves. #MittRomney is trying to get Ks using spitballs. #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
I’ve said it once, say it again. For such a done deal, #MittRomney is fighting very hard today to stop #RonPaul. #mepolitics #megop

Vera Francis ‏ @schoodic
@Citizensnews #MSP doesn’t cut the mustard, inid!

Lyle ‏ @Citizensnews
Don’t you mean #MSG? @schoodic: @Citizensnews #MSP doesn’t cut the mustard, inid! #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
Still no national delegate vote. We’ve been told after we vote, go home. No report on when we know results. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
A major shout out to the #Maine #RonPaul campaign team here. We couldn’t do it without them. They’ve been great! #mepolitics #megop

Vera Francis ‏ @schoodic

@Citizensnews Ah-yuh!

Lyle ‏ @Citizensnews
Poor old Washington @davidheidrich: .@ASFried Delegates claiming voter disenfranchisement…+Aroostook and Washington to Oxford. #mepolitics

@cdixon25 Seems to me that the Republican Senate candidates exemplify the range within the party, pretty much. #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
@ASFried There’s certainly candidates from all ends of the spectrum. It will be a very interesting primary vote. #megop #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25

Lizzy Reinholt ‏ @Lizzy_Reinholt
@cdixon25 – is Scott Romney still speaking at the convention or was he cut from the agenda?

Gerald Weinand ‏ @DirigoBlue
Kudos to @andiparkinson2 for a great job assembling tweets from today’s #MEGOPConvo in 3 coherent threads http://bit.ly/J5JjKt #mepolitics

Chris Dixon ‏ @cdixon25
@Lizzy_Reinholt Scott Romney is speaking now. #megop #mepolitics

(Note: Romney is speaking at 9:15pm, hours later than originally scheduled to address the Maine GOP.)
