Florida Politics has this interesting article about the Reform Party nominee for Governor of Florida, Darcy Richardson. One of the points mentioned in the story is that most Florida counties abbreviate the names of political parties, instead of including the whole party name. The Reform Party in most counties was “Ref.”, which might look like “Rep.” to voters that are either careless or have poor eyesight. Thanks to Peter Gemma for the link.
The Florida U.S. Senate race had no candidates on the ballot other than the Republican and Democratic nominees. But the Florida Governor’s race had the Reform Party nominee and three independent candidates.
