Not New York City. Not St. Paul or Minneapolis. Tampa. Which is arguably Florida’s most conservative major metropolitan area.

2. The beaches will still likely be studded with the occasional “drill baby drill” souvenir from the BP oil volcano. Just to remind them of the policy they probably will still support.
