Scott camp predicts monster turnout

Rick Scott is predicting a monster turnout -- 1.7 million voters -- for tomorrow's primary election. Of course, it would be in Scott's interest if hordes of new voters stormed polling places to rage against the political machine. As Scott strategist Tony Fabrizio notes in his statement below, early voting an absentee ballots are up -- but will that translate to overall increased turnout? Stay tuned...

“Given that as of Saturday, August 21st nearly 520,000 Florida Republicans have already voted by absentee or early vote, we expect overall turnout of at least 1.7 million in the Florida Republican gubernatorial primary,” Fabrizio said. “This would represent roughly 41% of registered Republicans, a 70% increase over the 2006 gubernatorial primary. This is consistent with the increased turnout we have seen in Republican primaries across the country where outsiders have shocked the establishment candidates.”
