RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry calls on St. Lucie County to count all early votes
TALLAHASSEE – Lenny Curry, Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, issued the following statement calling on St. Lucie County Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker to count all the early votes:
“RPOF has been monitoring the results in St. Lucie since election night. With Allen West down by only 1900 votes, and gaining more than 500 votes in just a partial recount, it would be unconscionable not to count the remaining votes.
“The Supervisor of Elections owes it to the people that elected her to count all of their votes that were cast early in the 2012 election cycle. She has already admitted there was a problem with the counting process and announced she would count all the votes. It makes no sense to arbitrarily cut off the counting process before it was finished.”
