Kentucky Election Officials Expecting Larger Turnout

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky is counting on having a larger
voice in the nation's presidential election this year.

With the Democratic race between Barack Obama and Hillary
Clinton still undecided, the number of voters participating in this
year's primary could exceed four years ago.

Secretary of State Trey Grayson says up to 25 percent of
Kentucky's registered voters are expected to turn out at the polls
on Tuesday.

The race between Obama and Clinton tops a number of races to be
considered by Kentucky voters on Tuesday. Kentuckians will also
vote in Republican and Democratic races for Congress and the
state's General Assembly.

OBAMA* My Recollection of Hillary Clinton at the 1995 Camp David Meeting Posted April 17, 2008 | 05:14 PM (EST) HUFFINGTON POST -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- After spending much of the day doing the sorts of things that normal teacher/scholars do, I returned to the blogosphere to see a raging debate about who said what at the January 1995 meeting convened by the Clintons at Camp David to help them sort through the 1994 election debacle and help him prepare for the 1995 State of the Union Address. I was there (the only female intellectual-scholar invited), and the tenor of the discussion was one of the instances I was referring to last Saturday in my post on TPM (I also attended a late 1993 intellectuals' dinner at the White House, where similar discussions occurred).
