ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (AP) -- Mark Ciptak is doing more than putting up a yard sign for the McCain-Palin ticket. He's named his daughter Sarah McCain Palin. But he might get some flak at home.
The Elizabethton, Tennessee, man says he ignored the name he and his wife had picked out, which was Ava Grace. Ciptak says when he filled out the paperwork for his new daughter's birth certificate, he substituted Sarah McCain Palin.
The blood bank employee for the American Red Cross says his wife will still take some more convincing.
He tells the Kingsport Times-News he hopes to get the word out about the McCain-Palin ticket, thanks to little Sarah McCain Palin.
