Kerry Plan Rumor Mill

Big talk today in the NC State Capital building, here in Raleigh.

The rumor mill has Kerry abandoning Florida to focus on Ohio, for good reason.

Apparently, the Dems feel confident enough that the Florida race will be tight and thus they believe they can keep the election in Florida from being certified by the Florida Secretary of State. It is being said that post election court challenges are ready to go, with the intent of having the Florida courts nullify the election in that state.

This is an important distinction. The Dem machine isn't looking to challenge the results of the election- they just want the results nullified, if goes against them. If true, Kerry supporters are counting on the balance of the electoral college votes to be handed to the Dem candidate. Dem strategists see the Electoral College numbers in favor of Kerry, without Florida.

Rumor also has it that the best Dem party election litigators are already in Florida to be on the ground early to choreograph the alleged plan.

The Dems want it, and they want it bad. As was recently written by CJ in The Unmentionables, this is going to be interesting.
