An Associated Press article in the Bangor Daily News and a Maine Public Broadcasting Network report included comments from University of Maine political scientist Mark Brewer about the possible effects on Maine’s Republican Senate candidates that the weekend’s GOP convention had when activists for presidential candidates Ron Paul and Mitt Romney took center stage. Maine Republicans vying for the Senate position had hoped to speak at the convention but were left with little or no podium time, according to the article. Brewer suggested the convention experience could help independent Senate candidate Angus King, who has argued the Republican Party is in disarray.
