Condo power in the 2010 election?

Original The road into Century Village in Deerfield Beach is called Amadeo Trinchitella Boulevard, named for the larger-than-life Democratic club leader whom even presidents and governors knew as "Trinchi.''

His death in 2005 marked the end of an era. The bastion of Northeastern transplants who would sooner miss a grandchild's bar-mitzvah than vote for a Republican was no longer a political juggernaut. The march of time had thinned the Democratic ranks throughout South Florida's retirement communities. In Century Village alone, the number of Democrats is half of what it was in 1992, when Broward County was credited with helping to put Bill Clinton in the White House.

But the war over the condos lives on. Column here.
