Elector Breaks Ranks with Minnesota Delegation

"An unknown Minnesota Democrat earned a footnote in history Monday by casting one of the state's 10 Electoral College votes for John Edwards, the Democratic vice presidential running mate for John Kerry," the AP reports.

"The Edwards vote gives Minnesota its first 'faithless elector,' the dubious name for Electoral College members who snub the candidate who won the state's popular vote in the general election. Kerry, who beat President Bush in Minnesota but lost overall, wound up with nine of the state's electoral votes."
