Primary Voters Head to Polls Tuesday

Sample Democratic Primary Ballot for Orange County Voters. ocfelections.com

Tuesday is primary election day in Florida.

In the Democratic gubernatorial primary, former Governor Charlie Crist is the heavy favorite against former state Senator Nan Rich.

The other statewide Democratic primary will pick a challenger for Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi. She’s better funded than both House Minority Leader Perry Thurston and former secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, George Sheldon.

A Democratic race to watch is the District 12 state Senate match-up between incumbent Geraldine Thompson and former Senator Gary Siplin. It’s close, but Thompson has an edge in fundraising and party support.

Florida is a closed primary state, but all voters have a say in nonpartisan judicial and municipal races.

Orange County has two ballot initiatives. One proposes a half-cent surtax for school construction. The other is a moot point. The Legislature has already overruled guaranteed sick time.
