- Accompanying note: "Former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska, a 2008 Democratic candidate for president, was the only candidate to defy a party ban on campaigning in Florida during the presidential primary season. The state was stripped of its delegate votes for violating national party rules by holding its primary Jan. 29, 2008, a week ahead of the allowed date. During a party convention in Orlando Oct. 10, 2007, Gravel was interviewed by AP correspondent Brendan Farrington of Tallahassee."
