Delicious: Crist’s Name to Appear on the Bottom of FL Ballot


That’s what happens when you run as an “NPA” (No Party Affiliation). Via CNN (h/t: @mattklewis):

According to the Florida Secretary of State’s office, the order that candidates are listed on the state’s ballot is predetermined by law. The winner of the Republican primary will receive top billing, followed by the winner of the Democratic primary and then any candidates who have qualified to run as members of Florida’s more than 30 registered “minor parties.” These candidates are listed in the order in which they qualified for the ballot.

Last on the ballot, also listed in the order that they qualified, are candidates running without party affiliation — listed as NPA. This is where Crist’s name will appear.

Four candidates have already qualified to run unaffiliated, ensuring that their names will be above the governor’s on November’s ballot: Sue Askeland, Bruce Ray Riggs, Bobbie Bean and Rick Tyler. Additionally, two minor party candidates have already qualified and will also be listed before Crist’s: Libertarian Alexander Andrew Snitker and Bernie DeCastro of the Constitution Party of Florida.

Candidates officially have until noon on Friday to qualify, meaning there’s still a chance that a Senate hopeful from the Surfers Party of America or the Possibility Party could be listed about the governor as well.

Heh. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy.

That was then. This is now (via).
