Election 2008: Shorts

  • The Associated Press' Tom Breen talks to U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., about his campaign for a fifth term.
  • The GOP candidate for agriculture commissioner, Mike Teets, plans to visit all 55 counties between Tuesday and Nov. 4 in his bid to unseat Democrat Gus Douglass, AP reports.
  • The Charleston Gazette hears from Putnam County voters who say touch-screen machines switched their votes from Democrat to Republican. But Secretary of State Betty Ireland tells AP and MetroNews that this type of voting machine has been repeatedly tested, and that its maker is checking out the complaints.

The switching Obama votes to McCain happened yesterday to a friend of mine when voting early in Ohio County. I suspect this problem is not being handled well locally or statewide.

It sounds like it's still only Democrats who don;t know how to vote. It sure sounds like an excuse for Democrat lawyers setting the stage to contest the election.
