    Glad to see the candidates taking time to come to our neck of the woods.

    From the vote count, it doesn't appear that Walton County voters thought he was 'awesome'.

    That's because most Walton voters are uneducated rednecks.

    Well then, looking at the map of the state and the red counties vs. the blue, there are an awful lot of "uneducated rednecks" who voted for a much better educated candidate.

    More folks voted against Governor DeSantis than for him. He beat Mayor Gillum by less than 1%. Looking strictly at the numbers Governor DeSantis does not own a mandate. If anything he probably ought to take a turn to the middle but I am under no illusion he will, but he did at least reach out to Mayor Gullum according to some reports.

    No surprise there. At all. It is what it is.

    "More folks voted against Gov. DeSantis than for him"? Did you mean to say that more people voted against Gillum than for DeSantis?

    No. Governor DeSantis had more votes than Mayor Gillum. There were some 3rd party candidates who carried votes. Governor DeSantis carried more votes than all the other candidates individually but not total votes. My point is there is not a mandate and had the results been reversed Mayor Gillum would not have had mandate also.

    I see your point but elections are like football games and votes are like points on the scoreboard.

    The difference is that over half voted against him. My point is a move to the middle would probably represent a larger portion of the more than 8 million who voted. Of course that is my opinion. Had Mayor Gillum won i feel he would have had to make a shift to the center also

    But didn't the people who voted for the other candidates also vote against Gillum?

    Absolutely, as I said mine isn't an D or R issue, mine is a representation issue.
