Mitch Perry Report 10.30.12 - Election Day apparently not in peril

Posted By on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 8:11 AM

This morning, a Wall Street Journal report answers the question that has been on the minds of voters, certainly in states adversely affected by super storm Sandy's destruction, which has caused millions of people in the northeast to be without electricity (along with countless devastation and at least 16 deaths). That is, could the election be postponed?

The answer is unlikely, but Congress does have the power to do so.

President Obama hasn't announced when he'll resume campaigning, but the Mitt Romney campaign sent out a press release early last night saying that the former Massachusetts governor will resume his campaign right here in Tampa on Wednesday morning, while Vice President Joe Biden will be in Sarasota Wednesday afternoon.

Although Gallup reports that Mitt Romney leads by 7 (!) points nationally among people who have voted early, Team Obama continues to talk smack about how they'll be victorious a week from now. Yesterday, strategists Jim Messina and David Axelrod were extremely confident in a conference call with reporters.

Florida's main teachers union, the Florida Education Association — like all unions in Florida — always faces challenges. Now they have to deal with a new report from a conservative think-tank that states its one of the worst in the nation.

Miss the World Series? You were among the majority of Americans.

And one of the Tampa Bay Times best reporters is moving on.
