Palin says she is confident as she heads to polls

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says she remains confident as she prepares to vote in the presidential election.

The Alaska governor stopped at a coffee shop in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, on her way to vote Tuesday morning.

She held up a newspaper that showed a headline reading, "Board exonerates Palin." That headline heralds the news that a state board has found no ethical violations by Palin in what has been known as the "Troopergate" scandal.

Palin held out the newspaper for TV cameras and remarked, "Nice headline."

After voting, Palin is expected to fly to Phoenix, where she is to join Republican candidate John McCain for their watch party Tuesday night.
