And they called it a surprise move?

"The movement to introduce the fundamentalist platform, which now officially states the party's priority as pledging allegiance "not to a political party, but to the Constitution of the State of Maine and the Constitution of the United States of America," began about 18 months ago when Cowan and other members of the Knox County Republican Committee began drafting a version of the platform."

Since when is following the constitution a surprise move? Both parties could use a refresher course on the constitution.
