McCain wins over Romney, Rudy! crashes, Huckabee is reduced to “other”.
Look for Rudy! to endorse McCain tomorrow. The chance of a brokered convention just went down — but the intra-party dirt will really start to fly now.
Clinton crushed Obama but gets no delegates.
Both Amendment 1 (cutting property taxes) and Initiative 3 (more slot machines) passed. Sigh.
Will anyone remember this prediction a year from now?
A study done by Coral Gables-based Washington Economics Group for the pro-slots organization Yes for a Greater Miami-Dade said more than 6,400 jobs could be created by the machines in their first year of operation. The study projects $26 million in tax revenues will go to the county and the cities of Miami and Miami Gardens in the first year.
I doubt they'll see that kind of money, although I'll not bet against gamblers' addictions, but I know there's no way they'll see a net increase in jobs anywhere near that size (they may displace a few, though).
