4:13 PM PT: FL-18: We have some early votes from Palm Beach County, where Carl Domino is far ahead of all his foes in the GOP primary to face freshman Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy. This is a weak field, but Domino's probably the best option for Team Red.
4:18 PM PT: FL-26: Early votes out of Miami-Dade have County School Board Member Carlos Curbelo easily ahead with 57 percent. Scandal-tarred former Rep. David Rivera is in fourth place at nine percent.
4:25 PM PT: FL-AG: With about 150,000 votes counted by the AP statewide, George Sheldon, who has a long career in Florida politics, is beating state House Minority Leader Perry Thurston 63-37. Thurston is from South Florida while Sheldon is from Tallahassee, but Thurston is only taking Broward County 52-48. In the Palm Beach and Miami-Dade early votes (not included in the AP total), Sheldon is running away with a win in those counties. Looks like game over for Thurston.
4:29 PM PT: FL-18: Via the AP, Domino is only leading Alan Schlesinger (the 2006 GOP U.S. Senate nominee in Connecticut) 34-30 in Martin County. However, Domino is so far easily romping in much larger Palm Beach, which is not in the AP total. If he keeps his huge margin in Palm Beach, he's probably fine.
4:36 PM PT: FL-18:Martin is easily the smallest county and Domino can afford a loss there if he wins St. Lucie and especially Palm Beach. If he's winning the big counties by big margins, that's the ball game.
4:40 PM PT: FL-Gov: With a little more than 300,000 votes counted, Charlie Crist leads Nan Rich 76-24 in the Democratic primary. Nothing to see here.
4:41 PM PT: FL-Gov: With about 300,000 votes counted statewide, the AP has Charlie Crist leading Nan Rich 76-24 in the Democratic primary. Nothing to see here.
4:46 PM PT: FL-26: 17,000 early votes are in for Miami-Dade, and Curbelo continues to lead the field with 55 percent. Joe Martinez is far back at 19 percent, with Rivera in fourth at 8 percent. Rivera only leads Lorenzo Palomares Starbuck (apparently, Boomer wasn't available).
4:53 PM PT: FL-26: Monroe County (Key West and other areas) really loves Ed MacDougall: With most of the county in, he's beating Curbelo 58-27 there. But it's all for naught: Miami-Dade's early votes are more than canceling it out, and Curbelo leads district-wide 49-25. These are the only two counties in the district.
