Maine Republicans Adopt Tea Party Platform

"In a move that seemed to surprise many members of Maine's Republican Party, a group of tea party-style activists redefined the party platform at the convention Saturday," the Portland Press Herald reports.

A vocal majority "supported a wholesale replacement of language worked on by the party establishment since at least January."

Maine Politics: "The official platform for the Republican Party of Maine is now a mix of right-wing fringe policies, libertarian buzzwords and outright conspiracy theories."
