Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Al Gore's campaign is reeling after two legal blows from state and federal courts.
Florida's Supreme Court will take up an appeal that Gore hopes will start a re-count of thousands of disputed ballots.
That after a Tallahassee judge yesterday rejected efforts of a recount.
The Republicans, meanwhile, are hoping to pad George W- Bush's lead in Florida with more overseas absentee ballots.
All this, as the deadline for appointing Presidential electors looms...just a week from today.
Jennifer Jones has more now from Tallahassee.
