Notes: Republican and Democrats continue to fight over the Florida vote with the presidency going to the winner. Both have heavy guns at work in the state, an indicia that the keys to the national treasury are at stake. The contributors to the winner are the ones who'll get the federal appointments, contracts and other perks. The losing party's contributors will lose their investment of money and time. As the recount in Florida continues the United States Supreme Court has agreed to hear the Republican case against the recount next Friday. The smart money at this writing is that George W. Bush will win Florida. 11.24.00
