Greene, Election Night party of 15
Despite proclamations that he had "thousands and thousands of volunteers," U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Greene never really built a grass roots network to match rival Kendrick Meek.
The point couldn't be made clearer than by attending Greene's election night party in West Palm Beach. By 8 p.m. as polls closed across the state, in a ballroom that could easily fit 250 supporters, sat 15 or so, and workers were called in to remove chairs that filled the room.
"I'm counting on Florida feeling like I do, fed up and frustrated with what's going on in Washington," Greene said shortly before polls closed.-- Aaron Sharockman
