Yeah I would typically vote R but at a local level they have been annoying me lately and these campaigns are really getting old.  I might vote for Donna just because she's not them, especially Davis.

Same. If it's down to Donna vs Davis, I'm voting Donna. I don't have to agree with someone on everything - like her plan for spending more city dollars on minority owned businesses. All you're doing is transferring favorable treatment from one group to another. But, she's also highlighted the insanity of our permitting process and how it needs to be addressed and shortened. With that, I entirely agree.

If we want the same-ol Jacksonville, then Davis is clearly that guy. I voted for LC and hope that's how this party plays out but we shall see...

Deegan and Davis, not a huge surprise.

Cumber is going to end up waaaay back.

Wow! 5th place out of 7. Very poor ROI for the money spent bashing Davis. What's the line on whether she will endorse the guy she's been calling Dirty and Liberal and Soft on Immigration and ...

Pleased to see Danny Becton come in 3rd for Appraiser.

And we will have a Father-Son pair with Matt and Joe Carlucci. Family get-togethers will be interesting, with them not being able to talk shop.

Now that the defacto bloodbath primary is over, time for the Davis campaign to pivot, reach out to the larger Jax community. He's quite personable and has *far* more relevant experience. Hopefully he gets to show those qualities moving forward. We'll see.

Democrat vote share at 48% - - Deegan does not have far to go if that distrubtion can hold in the general. Clearly a few R primary voters here, myself included, who will flip D in the general. I'd think anyone voting for Ferraro primarily because of fiscal responsibility (sees value in LOGT and/or disgusted by lot J), or anti-corruption would prefer Deegan over Davis. That doesn't need to be many of his voters. Have to imagine a few of Cumber's bloc will be vehemently anti-Davis by now.

Hope remains! I wish it wasn't Davis in the runoff, but the negativity and acrimony on the R side of the ticket may help suppress some R turnout. I wonder if Davis starts answering any media requests for the general?

Concerned Gibson supporters may not return in big numbers for Deegan in the runoff.  Same may be true for Ferraro supporters.  She will have to pick up a good number of R's that really don't like Davis and will turn out for the next round. 

Just can't understand what Davis supporters see in him after this negative and vacuous campaign and his no-show before most every public event.

When most of the public seems to dislike our City Council and Mayor's way of doing business, I continue to be amazed at how many don't show up to vote and then, those that do, reelect so many incumbents.  The apathy of our citizens is just as much a part of our leadership issue as those they elect.

Pleased to see Danny Becton come in 3rd for Appraiser.

You preferred Jason Fischer over Becton?  Really?  Why?

I didn't see any surprises with the results. Lots of money spent to be where most people thought things would end up months ago.

No, not at all. But I can see how it sounds that way. The best outcome would have been Morgan taking it in today's vote. I dislike both of the "R"s in this race. I used to attend Southeast CPAC meetings, and Becton is Becton's greatest fan.

Well, we should share a common concern in this race, like the Mayoral one.  The R's had more than 50% of this race's vote.  D's need to show up and R's need to reject Fischer as possibly the worst candidate in any race today.

Fischer is the biggest toadie I can remember in a local race in recent memory.

I would imagine olive branches were extended to both candidates within 10 seconds of the run off being announced last night. Ferraro & Gibson have a lot of leverage at the moment, will be interesting to see how they use it.

$361 per vote to be exact - may be a record breaker for Florida (or even US).
I highly doubt she endorses Davis - I'd actually like to see her endorse Deegan, but expect she just stays quiet.

I'm now voting for Donna.  I believe a lot of other Cumber supporters are and from what I've heard, even Ferraro supporters.  None of us like Tim Baker.  None of us like Daniel Davis.

Surprised how well Ferraro did. Otherwise yes, in line with expectations.

Almost certainly. Both Gibson and Ferraro I would expect to not fade away at this point.

Deegan got respectably close to winning outright on Tuesday, if she can get out there and get people to the polls in May she can absolutely win this.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

^Word. It's not encouraging for Davis, considering he's gotten over $2 million dollars from the donor class and had a long political career and he's still mostly unknown to voters, but there's time for this to change dramatically, especially with that much cash. My predictions:

  • Whoever the Democrats get is going to do well unless they split the vote too much like the Republicans appear to be
  • Ferraro, Cumber and Davis are going to be splitting same solid right voters, which isn't going to go well for Ferraro and Cumber and could be trouble for Davis in a crowded race.
  • As usual, Carlucci's a wildcard. He's got the benefit of a real public profile and record, plus far and away the second most money.
  • Carlucci and Insert Democratic Candidate will split the moderate and anti-syndicate vote.
  • Depending on the strength of the Democrat - I'd consider Deegan and Morgan both strong, but the list drops precipitously after that - they are likely to get into the runoff race against one of the Republicans and could well take the big prize.
A look back..... and worth repeating.
