David Jolly (Republican) wins upset in Florida
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:30:53 PM »
Apparently, the Republican candidate in a special election in Florida, David Jolly, has defeated his Democratic opponent, in something of an upset. 

Here are the totals, with all 225 precints reporting:

David W. Jolly (REP) 88,294 (48.43%)

Alex Sink (DEM) 84,877 (46.56%)

Lucas Overby (LPF) 8,799 (4.83%)

WRITE-IN 325 (0.18%)

I say that Mr. Jolly "apparently" has won, since there are likely to be lawsuits.  Or, even more probably, a "lost" ballot box may suddenly turn up with just enough votes to put the Democratic candidate over the top...

Sounds like SOP for the RAT Party.
