The Rest of Florida Votes Tomorrow
After one week of debates, ads, political rallies, town hall meetings and news, the remainder of Florida votes tomorrow. Everybody I know down there has taken advantage of early voting, which ended Saturday, and the early voters I would predict favor Newt, if they voted before the onslaught. Polls released today have Newt Gingrich taking a fall, but it remains to be see how close they will be. After the votes are counted, the winner will be determined by how the I-4 Corridor votes, as well as the voting trends in the Hispanic Community.
Many predict Romney can wrap up the nomination if he wins, but it his challenges with galvanizing Conservatives that must be taken into account, as well as Newt Gingrich's promise to stay in until the Convention. We're far from over, ladies and gentlemen!
On another Florida note, there was a huge pile-up on I-75 in Alachua County, between Gainesville and Ocala, that killed 10 drivers and injured over 20. Having driven on this portion of I-75 before, it is, for Florida, more forested. Trees aren't exactly high, but there are more of them than along other highways in Florida. Paynes Prarie Preserve, where this fire occurred, borders this very fast highway. (70 MPH speed limit...people drive faster) I've driven in fog and torrential downpours on I-75 previously, and can tell you that's no picnic, so I'm not surprised that something so terrible could happen when visibility suddenly drops down to zero. "The 'Right' Solutions would like to offer condolences and prayers to the families of those who were killed last weekend.
