Recently released fundraising totals and voter turnout figures have reaffirmed the higher-than-average attention being paid to a Florida House of Representatives race. As the House District 72 special election heads into its final day, Democrat Margaret Good and Republican James Buchanan have both out-fundraised their respective partys candidates in the 2016 House District 72 election. Another candidate in this year's race, Libertarian Alison Foxall, said she has raised the most money in her partys history for a campaign for the Florida Legislature.

Notice how the media hardly mentioned MN yesterday when the Democrat underperformed in a district they held and the Republican slaughtered the Democrat in a district we held.
The media has been keeping it these races quiet unless a Democrat pulls off a win in a super low turnout election.
Freepers in Western OK, GA and FL get out and VOTE today.
Ping. Elections today in FL, OK and GA.
TX early voting for the March 6 primary started this week. It’s important that President Trump sees support from his base in this off-year election. His presidency depends on what happens in November. As we know, Democrats taking over the House will result in his impeachment. That’s their obvious goal.
Oops I’m a week ahead of myself. TX early voting starts Feb. 20, a week from today.
I have heard nothing on the national news.
Yep. Its by design. I wish Rush and Hannity would mention these.
There are no elections today in Georgia
GA-LD-175 is an R+13 seat covering the western outskirts of Valdosta and rural areas west to the east side of Thomasville. Teacher Treva Gear (D) is the only Dem in the race and thus almost certainly takes one spot in the runoff, and may even have a small chance to win outright. She faces three Republicans; businessman John LaHood (R) looks most likely to advance, while cop Bruce Phelps (R) and businessman Coy Reaves (R) seem like longer shots but could surprise.
From RRH elections.

The SoS dropped the ball.
Elections aren't a MSM bellwether UNLESS democrats win...

FL-72 is probably the most competitive election up for grabs today.
OK-27 is overwhelmingly Republican.
Georgia 175 is as well, but not as much.
FL-72 is a swing district.
I live further south... or I’d be out voting in that election.
Youve posted three tomes now
I didnt disagree with you. I said SoS didnt list it
The name LaHood scared me for a second as I thought this candidate might be an offspring of the crooked, ultra -RINO Lahoods out of Peoria IL. He does not appear to be related
You might remember Ray LaHood who was a Congress Critter for many years out of Illinois before agreeing to become Obamas Republican beard in his cabinet as Secretary of Transportation.
I wasn’t mad at you, only pointing out how the SoS dropped the ball. It’s pretty bad that it wasn’t listed. SoS of Georgia is a Republican, he really should have listed it.
