Election Results - UPDATED

Charlie Crist wins in a landslide proving that Tom Gallagher has the stench of a loser. Maybe try getting rid of the powdered wig there Tom. That look went out of style back when Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died in 1826.

Alex Villalobos squeaks a narrow win over Frank Bolaños proving that it takes more than money to win elections. I think the public rejected the negative campaign tactics of Bolaños, I know I did. If Bolaños had just spent his money outlining a conservative vision instead of trying to brand his opponent as a liberal, he probably would have won.

Katherine Harris proves that she's still popular among the state's Republicans and that name recognition is still a very important factor. However it's highly unlikely that she'll unseat incumbent Bill Nelson who has even more name recognition and has not been controversial in his 6 years in Washington.

Randy Johnson also won his bid to be the Republican candidate for State CFO in November. I'm 4 for 4 so far. Tom Lee won this race, Randy Johnson carried Miami-Dade County but not the state.

Katy Sorenson will be returning to the County Commission.

And the County Commissioners won't be getting a pay raise.

Most of the candidates for the judgeships I voted for won. I had to get advice from my attorney friends who provided me with survey results from the Cuban American Bar Association about the qualifications of each candidate.

Actually Tom Lee won the GOP primary for CFO.

It's too bad that the GOP did not field a better candidate for US Senate. Harris is a joke which was proven with her comments the other day about religion which flies in the face of the Constitution, and the writings of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
