Sarasota Analysis: GOP wins overall but Democrats win Absentee Ballot votes in Marquee Races

In my continuing series analyzing the Sarasota County November 2014 election results, I have focused on the Governor’s race and the School Board race.

One interesting trend, however, is not just who wins but who wins the portion of the votes cast via Absentee Ballot, Early Voting, and on Election Day.

Absentee ballots have largely been thought of to be a source of strength for the Republican candidates statewide, but the numbers in the November 2014 elections in Sarasota may show the opposite trend locally.  In all of the most hotly contested countywide races, the Democratic candidate won the absentee ballot vote.  In some of the other races, even where the Republican candidate won by a solid amount, the Democrat did much better and even won the absentee ballot vote in one case.  We won’t know the breakdown of how many Republicans, Democrats, and Independents actually voted until about 30 days after the election – for now we just know the vote totals.

Conversely, Republicans won the Early Vote in all of these races and won the Election Day vote by the most outsized margins.

In the Governor’s race, Charlie Crist actually received 27,265 Absentee votes to Scott’s 24,516.

In the hotly contested School Board race between Ken Marsh (Democrat) and Bridget Ziegler (Republican), Marsh received 23,985 Absentee ballot votes to Ziegler’s 21,653 votes.

You can see this pattern in the less hotly contested countywide races.  In the Charter Review Board race, Republican Joe Justice won overall with 54% to Jennifer Cohen’s 46%.  But Cohen (24,759) received slightly more Absentee votes than Justice (24,210).

Even in the County Commission race between Republican Alan Maio and Democrat Ray Porter, where Maio won a decisive victory, Porter did much better in the Absentee portion of the vote than in the Early Votes or Election Day votes.

Richard DeNapoli, District 74

Candidate

BY   |   SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION   |   SATURDAY AUG 16, 2014
Having been adopted and raised by my maternal grandparents and caring for them through the last stages of their life has afforded me a perspective and opportunity to want to give back to my community and promote conservative Republican ideals. I believe in lowering taxes and a smaller government, which will lead to economic prosperity and more high quality and higher paying jobs for Floridians. Using my training as a Certified Financial Planner, I want to seek out and eliminate wasteful government spending, protect law abiding and legal residents from tax payer-funded giveaways to illegal aliens and safeguard the promises given to our seniors by former elected officials.  As a Certified Financial Planner Professional and successful businessman, I know how to balance a budget and help families and seniors plan for the future. Also, as a former Florida Real Estate Commissioner for the last six years, I worked to reduce excessive government regulations, while still protecting the public from unscrupulous individuals.  I also served as a local Republican Party County Chairman where I grew up and fought for conservative values for the last 15 years.  I’ve been knocking on thousands of voters’ doors throughout South Sarasota County for almost a year now and understand the issues that are important to you.  My experience in these areas sets me apart and makes me uniquely qualified to help grow Florida’s economy and build a bright future for our children and grandchildren.

False Attacks on Richard DeNapoli’s Military Record

My opponent in the Republican primary for House District 74 has leveled a series of false attacks against me during the campaign.  Today, he reached a new low.

In a press release entitled “STOLEN HONOR: DENAPOLI MAKES FALSE CLAIM THAT HE SERVED IN THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS ,” he relies upon dubious third-party sources with false information to claim that I lied about being in the Unites States Marine Corps Officer Candidate School.

 We provided my military records to the local newspaper to prove these accusations to be false, and the Sarasota Herald Tribune ran a story wherein they wrote as follows:

“Republican Florida House candidate Julio Gonzalez is accusing his GOP rival of lying about his military service, the latest salvo in an increasingly heated primary election battle.

But his opponent, Richard DeNapoli, says the charge is false, underscoring how desperate and “beyond the pale” Gonzalez has become in their House District 74 race.

At issue is DeNapoli’s 2002 attempt to join the U.S. Marines after he graduated from law school. DeNapoli said that instead of entering private practice he tried to become a lawyer with the Marine Corps.

Government records show DeNapoli enlisted on Oct. 3, 2002 and was sent to Quantico, Virginia, for Marine Corps officer training.

But DeNapoli said in an interview that his body gave out after just four months. He was hospitalized with hypothermia, ending his hopes of military service. He was disenrolled from the program on Feb. 25, 2003, records show.

 …

Gonzalez’s press release says DeNapoli’s training was “a mere 3 day camp” that DeNapoli has inflated — though Department of Defense records confirm DeNapoli was in “active duty for training” from Jan. 19 to Feb. 10 with the Marines.”

Though my opponent’s accusations were proven by government records to be false, he has continued his false attacks and has not apologized for his smears against my character.

See our campaign mailer refuting these false attacks.
