Maine Republican Straw Poll Goes to Rand Paul

Maine Republican Straw Poll Goes to Rand Paul

The big winner at the Maine Republican Convention was Sen. Rand Paul taking 26% of the vote. In second place was Sen. Ted Cruz with 14%.

Paul’s message is the same message that many Tea-Partiers have been saying for quite some time: Grow the party. It’s something that republicans struggle with, and it has even caused some division within the party.

Rand Paul said to The Associated Press: “Some people think that we need to have a litmus test on everything and we need to separate out those aren’t pure enough. I’m the opposite: I think we need to find our common ground in the Republican Party because we believe in some common things.”
