And the Winner Is…Florida?

January 4th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Thousands of voters switched political parties before the rolls closed at the end of the year in preparation of the January 29th Presidential Preference Primary. With the results from Iowa so mixed, and likely to stay that way in the coming weeks as voters in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Michigan pick their favorites, state GOP Chairman Jim Greer told reporters today that Florida will likely end up picking his partys nominee, even though the national party has taken away half the states delegates.

“We have 57 delegates. And were still the fourth largest delegation in the nation going into our convention. Democrats have no delegates. In fact, the democrats arent even campaigning in Florida right now, like Republicans are.” says Greer. “When we get to Super Tuesday on February 5th, 24 other states are going to vote on that day. They are not going to be asking what did Iowa and New Hampshire doTheyre going to be asking across this nation, what did Florida do on the 29th?

In addition to potentially selecting candidates for the Presidency of both major partys, Florida voters will also decide the fate of a plan to save most homeowners about 200 dollars on their property taxes.
