Early Riser's Poll Report: Lynch Clinging to 37-Vote Advantage
The Republican primary election for the seat in Congress vacated by Robert Wexler was too close to call last night, forcing a manual recount in Broward and Palm Beach elections offices. As of this moment, businessman Ed Lynch has 3,320 votes in a district that straddles the two counties. Joe Budd has 3,283.
Should Lynch prevail, it will be thanks in large part to his strong showing in Broward, which occupies a smaller portion of the 19th Congressional District. The most recent numbers show that Budd edged Lynch in Palm Beach but that Lynch made up by scoring Broward votes by such a wide margin.
