Palm Beach County ballots are in

Yesterday, August 26, 2014, Florida had primary elections for the Democratic and Republican party candidates, as well as non-partisan races and some questions to be answered in a couple of the towns within the county. Many winners of the partisan races will continue forward through the November 4, 2014 General Election.

As you can see with the overwhelming majority of the winners – name recognition goes a long way to winning an election. Here are the results:

U.S. Congress District 18 (Republican Primary)

Republican Carl Domino won taking in 47.29% of the vote over his five opponents.

U.S. Congress District 20 (Democratic Primary)

Alcee Hastings won over his two opponents garnering 75% of the votes.

U.S. Congress District 21 (Democratic Primary)

Ted Deutch won over his opponent Morel with over 93% of the vote total.

U.S. Congress District 22 (Republican Primary)

Republican Paul Spain will move on to face Democrat Lois Frankel in November, taking 47.47% of the vote over his two opponents.

Rick Scott won over his two opponents garnering over 86% of the vote total. He will face Charlie Crist, Adrian Wyllie as well as some no party affiliation candidates in November.

Democrat Florida Governor

Charlie Crist won over Nan Rich in the Democratic Party primary gaining over 86% of the vote total. He will face Libertarian Adrian Wyllie, Republican Rick Scott and the no party affiliation candidates vying to be Florida’s next governor. Make certain to subscribe as we will be writing more in-depth articles concerning each of the candidates.

  1. Adrian Wyllie deserves my vote and yours too. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round, election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of Florida and stop voting for these ‘paid for’ career politicians that are only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians. Even if it’s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do what is right for our (yours and your children’s) future and vote for Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very powerful. Visit his website today.
