TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas man says he's dropping his objection to President Barack Obama being listed on the state's November ballot.

Manhattan resident Joe Montgomery told the secretary of state's office by email Friday that he and people around him have faced what he called "animosity" over his challenge to Obama's inclusion on the ballot.

Montgomery's plans to drop his objection were first reported Friday by The Manhattan Mercury. Montgomery argues Obama is not eligible to serve as president.

The State Objections Board reviewed Montgomery's arguments Thursday but postponed a decision, saying it needed more information. The board is made up of the secretary of state, the attorney general and the lieutenant governor.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the board would convene again Monday as planned.
