You’re so Maine. You probably think this convention’s about you.

Glad @MittRomney is the official Republican nominee!
Too bad Iowa wasn’t more helpful… #RNC2012 #RomneyRyan2012

Have to give Maine’s #RNC2012 delegates kudos. They’re standing up to the corporate-chosen candidate. Wish Dems would do the same.

The way things look right now, I suspect the person getting the biggest bounce out of #GOPConvention2012 will be @GovGaryJohnson.

58. Caroline Horn ‏@CNHorn
Convention organizers tell @CBSNews it was not planned for New Jersey to put Romney over the top. Coincidence it was Christie’s home state.

59. Erin Burnett ‏@ErinBurnett
Ignoring #ronpaul votes in #rnc rollcall seems counterproductive. His supporters are passionate, Mitt needs their votes in Nov.

60. Black Canseco ‏@BlackCanseco
Romney got the #GOP nomination with one year of tax returns out. ONE YEAR .
And not even a completed one year at that. #RNC
