After Review, Romney Still Wins Maine

Former Massachusetts Govenor Mitt Romney can breath a sigh of relief for now - Maine is still in the win column. Politico's Tim Mak has more:

Maine Republican Party chairman Charlie Webster has admitted that the state party made numerous clerical errors in counting the state’s caucus results — even omitting some votes because emails reporting tallies “went to spam” in an email account.

However, Webster insisted that the errors did not change the outcome.

On Saturday, he had declared former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney the winner of Maine’s Presidential Preference Poll by fewer than 200 votes, even though not all municipalities had reported results.

The vote figures may be altered slightly, he said, but the results — a Romney win, followed by a second-place finish by Paul — would not change.
