Jeff Greene lost own precinct 2-to-1 in Democratic Senate primaryby George Bennett | August 27th, 2010
Election wonks take note! The new precinct-by-precinct voting totals for Palm Beach County are available on the county elections website.
One nugget: Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene lost his precinct 2-to-1 to Kendrick Meek in the Democratic Senate primary. That’s not a ratio of 2-to-1. It was literally 2 votes for Meek and one for Greene, presumably his own. Greene’s wife isn’t registered in Palm Beach County.
Only 26 Democrats are registered in Greene’s precinct, compared to 84 Republicans. Marco Rubio carried the precinct 26-0 in the GOP Senate primary.
Another tidbit: Greene’s mother’s Century Village precinct was more competitive. Meek won it 115 votes to 107.
Meek carried Palm Beach County with 64.4 percent. He got 57.6 percent statewide.
