PHOTO INDEX: "THE SHOW ME" STATE, MISSOURI AND JOHN McCAIN AT THE 2008 GOP CONVENTION.
BETTER LATE THAN.....
It took more than two weeks, but finally there is a winner in Missouri. Fifteen days after Election Day, Republican Sen. John McCain has narrowly edged out President-elect Barack Obama in the state, according to CNN's review of the latest unofficial vote totals from the Missouri Secretary of State. This resolves the final outstanding contest of the 2008 presidential race. According to the unofficial results, McCain won the state by 3,632 votes . The unofficial count shows McCain with 1,445,812 votes, or 49.4 percent, and Obama with 1,442,180 votes, or 49.3 percent. With Missouri's 11 electoral votes in Senator McCain's column, the final count is 365 for Obama and 173 for McCain. "The Show Me" state broke its streak of picking the right ticket for President. I feel for them since I've only voted for 2 winning Presidents in 36 years. So now the count is over and the results are semi official until the Electoral College.
