“Florida is like an aircraft carrier: Once you start turning it, it’s hard to stop, and it’s been turning now for about the last 10 days. … The Dems are talking about how they’ve closed the gap on absentee, but since the early vote window’s gone from two weeks to one week, all that they’re doing is taking their early vote and voting them absentee. … We’re ahead of where we were in ’08, and … our Election Day turnout is going to be very strong. … Every day, [Florida] gets better, and as Haley Barbour says, ‘Good gets better and bad gets worse.’ — Mitt Romney’s political director Rich Beeson.
