  •  This is the way that Maine do their primaries (0+ / 0-)

    I discuss not it.

    In a common primary you have the recent case of P LePage, who won the primary for Governor (37.39%) with strong Paulist support.

    If the Paulists would be not a danger for S Collins, she would not be angry.

    •  And her direct fight with Rand Paul (0+ / 0-)

      is a big mistake for her. With that she call strongly for bigger troubles in her primary.

    •  Outside of presidential races... (0+ / 0-)

      All other statewide races for Maine are done via primary, not caucus, so bringing up Ron Paul's 21 of 24 delegates (which, by the way, was done through the convention process, not even through the ground-level caucuses, which Romney still ended up winning 38%-36%) is still completely irrelevant to how Susan Collins will do in a primary.

      But LePage's 37.9% proves nothing, he won in a divided field, no Republican is going to be Susan Collins in a primary unless they can get an outright majority (there isn't going to be anyone serious running against Collins from the left to make the type of victory LePage got at all realistic).
