Missouri’s presidential electors gathered at the State Capitol today and cast their ballots for Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, who lost last month to incumbent Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Despite the nationwide results, Missouri’s 10 electors were still committed to cast their ballots for the Romney/Ryan ticket. State Representative Stanley Cox (R, Sedalia) was one of those 10. He said it was a little interesting to cast an electoral ballot for someone he knows won’t be president.
“I guess, you know, I made a moral commitment to a bunch of people back in June that I would do this, so it’s not hard to do," Cox said. "I certainly think he’d have made a great president, although I know he’s not going to be president.”
