Democrats Are “Cleaning Our Clock”
Huge Democratic turnout in Palm Beach County has Republicans worried.
During the first three days of countywide early voting, 60 percent of ballots cast have been by Democrats, 22 percent by Republicans.
That’s a 38 point edge, even though Democrats only hold a 14 point lead in registrations.
Republican Dina Keever is running for state attorney and is hoping labels don’t define her race.
“I’m not worried at all because I’m not a party candidate,” said Keever.
Her opponent says the memo shows the depth of Democratic enthusiasm.
The memo states, in part:
Conslusion [sp]: The Democrat turnout machine in the county has been very effective and they are cleaning our clock. Even if Romney wins the state (likely based on polls), the turnout deficit in PBC will affect our local races.
