    The first Rasmussen Reports post-primary survey of the Florida governor’s race finds Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Alex Sink in a close contest.

    Scott, the winner of Tuesday’s bruising GOP Primary, earns the support of 41% of Likely Voters in the state, while Sink picks up 36% of the vote. Independent Bud Chiles runs a distant third with eight percent (8%). Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided.

    Earlier this month, prior to the primary, Scott posted a 35% to 31% lead over Sink, the state’s chief financial officer who faced only token opposition in Tuesday’s Democratic Primary. Chiles, who has worked in the non-profit sector and is the son of a former Democratic governor, picked up 16% support at that time.

    Maybe Butterworth can put his buddy Satz on the Supreme Court and get him the hell out of Broward once and for all?

    Retreat with dignity.

    Help us Bob!

    Getting Bob to get Satz on the State Supreme Court to get him out of Broward is a good idea, but it has one fundamental flaw. Satz is too old. They have mandatory retirement for judges at age 70. If Satz isn't 70 yet, he's real close. Too bad they don't have the same for state attorneys.

    And you know what they were worth every bit of it. The children of Broward could not been left in better hands. Amen. Good Luck JUDGE Lopane. That sounds so good.

    Hey 10:27 (aka Raag)

    Don't be such a sore looser.

    You're beginning to be as hateful and sound like Mardi Ann Levey Cohen Jingleheimerloseonemoretimeforthegipper. Karma like that will never let you win.

    Nick Lopane is a great choice and addition to the judicial clean-up so greatly needed.

    Time for you to move on and prepare for your next loss. Nick is in, you're not - get over it!

    Lopan is a great guy - Raag is as well. However, Raag has to understand he will not get appointed having represented a cop killer. The police opposition to his appointment is strong, ever present and ultimately reaches the ear of the Governor every time. Very unfortunate. He would make another fine judge.

    I've never believed in posting anonymously, although I understand the right of others to do so. It's quite interesting, however, when others post anonymously and falsely use someone's name.

    I have posted on this blog twice, now for a third time, each time using my name. The first time was in support of Stacy Ross' appointment and the appointment process in general. The second was in reference to my friend Tom Powers being charged for a crime he did not commit, only 28 days after the alleged incident, despite the fact that the videotaped crime of a cadre of Hollywood police officers went uncharged a full year after that incident. This is my third post.

    For whatever my detractors think of me, it is wrong to falsely use my name and say I am upset by the appointment of my friend Nick Lopane. I have known Nick for ten years, and congratulate him on his efforts, on reaching his goal, and on never giving up. He will be an excellent Judge and I do hope he is assigned eventually to Criminal Court where I will have the chance to practice in front of him.

    By the way, if anyone watched the Marlins game last night, you would have seen me in the stands (and on the large scoreboard), not posting on the blog. As far as my "strained smile" goes, according to a previous poster, it will never be strained. As one who has been blessed to have a beautiful life both in and out of the courthouse, I will always have much about which to smile. Finally, if anyone has any questions about my perseverance, come run with me this Saturday. I'm doing fifty miles, and I'll be smiling during that too.

    As Oscar Wilde said, "the only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about." Thanks KMFA for all the attention.

    to RAAG and othere, i had a drink with the detective who was in charge of the police shooting that u were involved in, he told me u were a gentleman and he did, in fact, write a letter of support for you to the governor. i believe your prime opposition comes from certain elements in the hollywood PD who are not happy with you not for your representation of the police killer but your avid representation of f those abused by police in that area. good luck you will make a great judge someday.

    To 9:03 - That's the faction. Again, Raag - you are a class act. I do hope you get it one day.

    CONGRATS TO "JUDGE" LOPANE!!!!! He is a good man and has done a ton more than most of the haters here could ever hope to accomplish!!! He will make an outstanding judge wherever he's assigned.
    For those of you already planning his demise come election time, think long and hard about it. LoPane has a great deal of respect in the legal community and in this county. Go chase some of the other folks that have no business being judges or even lawyers for that matter.
    Go get'em Nick-You're gonna be great-don't listen to the haters on this blog-do what you always do-continue to act with class, dignity and honor as you have always done!!

Don't listen to the haters judge Lopane, I'm glad you did not make judge util know,with Judge frusciante leaving time could of not been perfect, someone else would of never worked, you both really bonded well with the family's and children of Broward. That job is hard to fill a pro has filled the position
