Results From The Maine Republican Primary

February 13, 2012 9:09 am 0 comments

Romney – 39%

Ron Paul – 36%

Santorum – 18%

Gingrich – 6%

Total of anti-Romney vote:  60%

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a prominent voice among some conservatives, said Romney has work to do to convince GOP voters he’s moved beyond his “pretty moderate past … even in some cases a liberal past.”

“I am not convinced, and I do not think the majority of GOP and independent voters are convinced,” Palin said on Fox News Sunday.

Santorum raised $3 Million in the three days after his sweep in Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota.

The Maine vote totals reflected about 84 percent of the state’s precincts, with nearly 5,600 Republicans voting out of 258,000 registered.

That brings the official delegate count to 123 for Romney, 72 for Santorum, 32 for Gingrich and 19 for Paul, with 1,144 delegates needed for the nomination.

Santorum said Sunday he could do “exceptionally well” in Michigan, where Romney’s father served as governor. The Midwestern state and Arizona host Republican presidential nominating contests on Feb. 28.

“We’re going to spend a lot of time in Michigan and Arizona, and those are up next. And that’s where we’ve really been focusing on,” Santorum told ABC’s “This Week.” He suggested that a strong showing in those contests would make the presidential contest “a two-man race,” dismissing current rivals Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.

    Why A Republican Governor Vetoed Religious Freedom

    Before the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (RINO-AZ) vetoed a religious freedom bill that would have protected Christian business owners, she was warned not to embrace the homosexual agenda by nearly a dozen law professors.

    “Nearly a dozen leading law professors from Harvard, Stanford, George Mason, Notre Dame and other top institutions across America have endorsed the controversial legislation in Arizona that would strengthen the state’s religious-rights standards,” reports WND.

    The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics,” the professors said in a letter to Brewer. “We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information.

    Dueling Boycotts: Christians vs. ‘Gays’ And Mozilla vs. World Vision

    In recent weeks two dueling boycotts have forced leaders to resign their jobs.

    First the Christian charity World Vision endorsed homosexual “marriage” and faced a severe backlash by Christians. The corporation quickly repented, and issued a statement reversing their policy and returning to “Biblical Authority” for Jesus’ Matthew 19 definition of marriage as valid only between one man and one woman.

    A pro-homosexual board member, Jacqueline Fuller was forced to resign, and now World Vision has fully returned to the Christian faith. The Christian boycott has ended, and it is now safe again for Christians to donate to World Vision.

    However, all is not well, since other companies are now persecuting Christian leaders.

    National Right To Life leader endorses “Brady’s Law” in Colorado

    If you’re an insider to the pro-life movement, you recognize the potential divide between “incrementalist” pro-lifers who want to make abortions harder to do, and “personhood” pro-lifers who want to ban all abortions beginning at conception.

    I just conducted a news-making interview that may help bridge the pro-life divide.

    Carol Tobias, president of the National Right To Life Committee (NRLC), was just interviewed on our TV show PIJN NEWS and we discussed our differences.

    Carol then endorsed Colorado’s ballot initiative, Amendment 67, “Brady’s Law” that would protect children beginning at conception, giving them legal status if killed by a criminal.
