Florida Election

The votes seem to be counted (story here from the Orlando Sentinel). It seems likely that Bill McBride is going to be declared the winner of the Democratic guvernatorial primary.

If I was Ms. Reno, I'd concede and endorse him right away. If she wants to help folks sue the counties that had election screwups in a civil suit demanding damages because they were disenfranchised, okay, more power to her and to them. Screw ups clearly happened, and they shouldn't have. But she should not be a party to any kind of further rerun of the post-2000 election.
