State to Formally Cast Electoral Votes for McCain

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Officials will formally cast Kentucky's
eight electoral votes for president and vice president during a
ceremony at the state Capitol.
Secretary of State Trey Grayson will lead the proceedings that
begin at 11:45 a.m. EST Monday in the Supreme Court chambers.
The all-Republican cast of electors include former state
Republican Party chairman Bob Gable, former state Supreme Court
Justice Walter Baker, and Lexington businessman Don Ball.
Secretary of state spokesman Les Fugate said the electors are
expected to cast their ballots for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sara
Palin who carried Kentucky over President-elect Barack Obama.
The Kentucky ballots will be sent to the U.S. Senate for
tabulation Jan. 8.

    I thought it was over. Obama won. Get over it or is this just an attempt to reestablish KY as a republican state.

    Obama posted his birth certificate on his website. If you are going to make accusations at least have the proof to back them up.

    Crystal: McCain was born in Panama. Hardly the US, though a US territory. And Obama's birth certificate was shown when the question first arose as well as being confirmed by the state of Hawaii, see here:
