Follow Up on Maine Republican Caucuses: Results on February 11

In response to an email inquiry from FHQ, Maine Republican Party Executive Director Mike Quatrano indicated that while the Maine caucuses will begin this weekend and not end until March 3, the results will still be released as planned on February 11. The three four caucus sites that have opted to hold later caucuses -- Rome on February 16, Aurora/Amherst, Eastbrook, Franklin, Mariaville and Osborn collectively (District 6) on February 18, Gouldsboro, Hancock, Lamoine, Waltham, Sorrento, Sullivan, Winter Harbor and Fletcher's Landing collectively (District 5) on February 18, and Castine on March 3 -- have thus opted not to take part in the official straw poll to be taken and reported on February 11. The presidential preference results released that day -- two weeks from Saturday -- will only include the presidential preference votes from the municipal caucuses held on or before February 11.

NOTE: This walks back and clarifies at least one comment FHQ made in our initial post about the Maine Republican caucuses starting this weekend. [Mainly, that the results will not be held until those final three four caucus meetings can take place as originally speculated.]

There's actually 4 caucuses after February 11. You missed Hancock County District 5.
