Did Ron Paul Win Maine? Ctd

The libertarian lost the Maine caucuses by 194 votes. Nate Silver says Washington County, which didn't vote due to horrible weather, probably wouldn't have given Paul the win:

Just 113 votes total were cast in the county in 2008, and only 8 of those were for Mr. Paul. John McCain, instead, won the plurality. In addition, Mr. Romney narrowly won the two counties, Hancock and Penobscot, that border Washington County to the west and which are probably the best demographic match for it — although Mr. Paul won sparsely-populated Aroostook County, which borders it to the north, where he took 81 votes to Mr. Romney’s 26.

But the point is that we should know the full results. The Romney supporting county Republican chair wants his county included. It's called democracy.
