Three elected Democrats from Kentucky won't be in Charlotte this fall. The State Journal reports:
Chandler, Yarmuth, and Beshear join a long list of Democrats skipping the national convention, including Missouri senator Claire McCaskill, West Virginia senator Joe Manchin, West Virginia governor Earl Ray Tomblin, and congressmen John Barrow of Georgia, Jim Matheson of Utah, and Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell of North Carolina.
Update: The above story has been removed. A spokesman for the Kentucky Democratic party says both Yarmuth and Beshear will be attending the convention but that Chandler does not plan on attending.
