Okay, Florida, who’s it going to be?
Brian Ballard or Nan Rich? Bob Buckhorn or Joe Gruters? Attorney General Pam Bondi or Arthenia Joyner?
These are the stark choices Floridians face as they go to the polls on Election Day.
Legally speaking, a vote for president is a vote for the electors of president and vice president of the United States. Both parties designated slates of electors in September. One slate or the other will convene next month, a few days before Christmas, in the remodeled state Senate chamber in the Capitol and award Florida’s 29 electoral votes to the winner. Both parties’ slates include current and former elected officials, party leaders, donors and long-time activists, with some interesting names in here.
