With Mitt Romney's nomination all but decided, Ron Paul supporters wrested control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention, party officials said as the two-day convention neared its end Sunday, May 6, 2012. The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)
