BDN 1:30pm story:

The 20 Maine Republicans committed to Paul continue to reject compromise and insist that they all be seated at the national convention that begins Monday.

Ashley Ryan, a Paul supporter who was elected Maine’s new Republican national committeewoman during the state party convention, is at the national convention site in Tampa, Fla. She reaffirmed Thursday morning that her group will not agree to any compromise.

Despite Wednesday’s negative ruling from the Committee on Contests and the RNC’s endorsement of that ruling today, the Maine delegates pledged to Paul will take their case to the convention credentials committee, which is scheduled to meet this afternoon and Friday, according to Ryan.

“We were all duly elected and we should all be duly seated,” she said. “When you look at the case, it would be an embarrassment to the party, to [presumptive presidential nominee] Mitt Romney and to Maine if we’re not seated.”

PPH 1 pm story:

“Members of the Republican National Committee voted Thursday to split Maine’s delegation to the national convention into two separate groups, awarding roughly half of the state’s 20 contested delegates to Mitt Romney and half to Ron Paul, a Maine party official said.

Charlie Webster, chairman of the Maine Republican Party, said the RNC Committee on Contests had hoped that Maine’s contingent of 20 Paul delegates would agree to the split. But the Paul delegates rebuffed the deal, so the RNC committee went ahead and named the individuals who will represent Maine on the floor of the Republican National Convention, Webster said.

The Paul delegates now have the option of appealing the Contests Committee’s decision to the convention’s Credentials Committee, which is expected to meet later Thursday. Paul supporters have said they would take their case to the convention floor on Monday, if necessary.”
