    Hate to throw some cold water on this election. Once again the short-sighted citizens of Leon County continue to only elect Democrats for their State Reps. Republican Gov., Republican Cabinet, Republican Legislature (both houses}. No wonder they worry about state jobs being cut; there is no one there for Leon County that is really a part of the leadership of has any prospects for it. I guess this will always be a blue county, along with most of the surrounding ones, and the complaints about not getting any help with the Legislature or the Governor's office will continue. How's that practice going for ya?

    A Republican cannot win that Senate seat, by design. Given that fact, electing a Democrat who is competent, not a complete political novice, NOT a flaming liberal/radical, and will represent the people of Tallahassee in the Senate seems like the prudent thing to do. We've had about three decades of good service in that seat by level-headed Democratic businessmen between Pat Thomas & Al Lawson, so it would have been a shame to elect someone that is starting off with his service with the one-page "How a Law is Made" cheat sheet in hand.

    Mr. Montford was Principal of Godby when I was a kid, I can take credit for some of his gray hair for sure! Congratulations Senator.

    People around here are just absolutely stupid. Montford is just another "government is the solution to all the world's problems" democrat. If the last two years in DC haven't been enough to teach you folks what they're really all about, nothing ever will.
