Click here to see the statewide numbers for all races, from the Florida Department of State, Division of Elections.

Click here to see the Polk County numbers, from the Polk Supervisor of Elections office.

As I mentioned last night, there were no surprises locally, and with only a few exceptions the Polk County numbers were fairly consistant with the statewide results. Of course, Katherine Harris' numbers here were slightly higher than the tally across the state, but then she was born and raised in Bartow, and her family is among the best known in the area.

Speaking of Ms. Harris, she didn't waste any time in going after Democratic incumbant and heavy favourite Bill Nelson. She didn't even bother acknowledging her primary opponents, and instead of the usual "let's come together" speech, Ms. Harris let it be known that she expected the GOP leadership to come behind her in the general election campaign. We'll see about that; after all, they had already advised her not to expect such support. And she went negative right away, using the same POS she has been using in her most recent ads labeling Nelson as a "liberal do-nothing senator who hasn't sponsored a meaningful bill in six years". The electorate will see through that.

The governor's race should be rather interesting, and it promises to be the most expensive contest in Florida's history.

Kat Harris' routine is getting old. She's a despicable wingnut that will soon never-to-be-heard-from-again.
