#BlueWave in Florida? Not so much. More than 2.6 million mail-in ballots were sent out by elections supervisors two weeks ago. As of early Tuesday morning nearly 446,000 of those ballots had been returned with almost 40,000 more Republicans submitting ballots than Democrats, even though Democrats requested almost 120,000 more of the mail-in ballots than did their GOP counterparts.
That doesn’t mean you don’t need to work your heart out for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis: you do. It’s close, and it’s tough, and the consequences of defeat are frankly ghastly (as in, #MakeFloridaVenezuelaAgain).
But it does mean that the Enemedia’s narrative isn’t bearing up in the face of hard facts. And that may have national consequences.
