|Daniella Levine Cava and her son yesterday.|
12:45pm: No one from staff is talking at Daniella Levine Cava headquarters. Only one brave soul let me take his picture.
1:00pm: Daniella Levine Cava said she was cautiously optimistic. The top 25 districts are having good turnout but she's not making any predictions till the end of the day.
Lynda Bell has poll workers in T-shirts insinuating that the police support her and visa versa. Daniella is endorsed by the police.
1:40pm Pouring rain.
2:00pm sunny here at Coral Reef library. A fire fighter told me John Rivera got rid of all the phony black t shirts--- impersonating a police officer. The police endorsed Daniella Levine Cava. Actually Rivera just asked them if they were police officers and the next thing he knew they were gone.
People are voting here. 2:23pm: 60 people. This is a busy precinct too.
3:20 pm in the last District 8 election 43,212 people voted (but remember in 2010 it was a runoff for in November in a Governor race year, so more people votes). There are about 57 precincts. As of yesterday about 121,000 people voted absentee and early voting in the entire county.
Feller community room at the Palmetto Bay Library 3:40 pm. The guy out front estimates about 70 people voted at most.
4:00pm Centennial Middle School - the estimate here is 60 voters by the guard and someone here since 7.
4:17 Whigham Elementary- wouldn't tell me an estimate --- booo oh now I got it 30 to 60.
5:00 Got in trouble for peeing in Cutler Bay at a precinct. It is so unfair not being allowed to pee. I am not even working on a campaign. I had my nifty Colorado shirt on -- not even the one that says Rocky Mountain High. It is a national Park T Shirt. Anyway campaign workers dropped off are left with bushes sometimes if they are there all day.
5:46 St. Richards Parish, Palmetto Bay. 300 voted. Lynda Bell called me pure Venom, at least I am pure.
7:24 pm Lynda Bell is winning in absentee ballots: 3,596 to Daniella's 3,068. At the Feller Community center Lynda Bell got 99 and Levine Cava got 93. Early voting Bell got 1,418 to Levine Cava's 2,313. Without today's vote Daniella is winning 5,393 to 5,014....51.82% to 48.18%. Lynda Bell got 54 to Daniella's 91 at Coral Reef Park. St. Richards Paalmetto Bay Lynda Bell 36 Daniella Levine Cava 53. Coral Reef Library 40 Lynda 38 Daniella. Methodist church 81 Danniella to 58 Lynda. Perrine Peters.
I am at Daniella's victory party 9:26pm. No victory yet but Daniella is ahead.
