Talks Continue on Maine's Ron Paul Delegates

Negotiations could determine who gets seated at convention.


Negotiations aimed at brokering a compromise between the Ron Paul delegates elected at the Maine Republican Convention and party mainstreamers who are challenging those delegates are continuing.

The outcome of discussions that were going on Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., could determine whether 20 members of Maine's 24-member delegation will be seated at the convention. The talks could also determine what share of the 24 delegates will go to the libertarian-leaning Texas congressman and how may to putative Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
