Gimenez pulls to lead w/ AB+EV

Carlos Gimenez already has a 51 percent lead over Julio Robaina in the bid to become our next county mayor. Well, almost 52 percent.

While Robaina got a tiny head start on absentee ballots (38,420 votes to 39,749), Gimenez got a larger lead in early voting (22,321 to 17,283). The total votes cast are 62,125 for Mayor Gimenez and 58,005 for former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, who will have to find something else to do tomorrow.

When that 51.71 lead over Robaina's 48.29 percent only grows as Election Day numbers trickle in from the precincts, I want Mayor Gimenez and everyone else to remember one thing: Ladra was the first one to call him that.

I have decided to moderate comments for a while as there are some that are simply off-subject and have become personal and offensive in nature, attacking not just me but others through this venue.

Comments that add substance and context to the news and issues in the blog will be posted. Comments that use profanity and abuse this open space to attack others will be saved and, when called for, sent to the appropriate authorities.
