Sinking Sink

Here's the latest in FL13's special congressional election:

With more than 119,000 ballots cast early or in the mail, the GOP holds a returned-ballot advantage of 4.06% — thereby reaching the magic number some observers believe the Republicans must be at by Election Day in order for them to win the seat.

According to the latest data — and this data reflects some cancelling out that does not show up in Pinellas Supervisor of Elections’ raw numbers – 48,123 ballots from Republican voters have been returned as of Friday, while Democrats have turned in 43,526. Third-party or NPA voters have cast 21,503 ballots.

119,000 early ballots seems like a lot for an off-year special election, doesn't it?

David Jolly has a real chance to win this, but he and his team should be ready to pounce on any signs of irregularities -- which is the nice way of saying "the Democrats will steal this election if they can."
