Against three opponents, Dyer won with 58.26% of the vote. An overwhelming victory that affirmed the Mayor’s work to make Orlando the best place in Florida to live, work and raise a family.
In a race where Vote-by-Mail and Early Voting ballots accounted for nearly half of the total vote, 46.5%, Mad Dog Mail made sure Dyer built an insurmountable lead before our opponents even got started.
The Orlando Sentinel reported the absentee mail program produced by Mad Dog “propelled” Dyer’s victory with Dyer capturing almost 60% of absentee votes.
With our Vote-by-Mail program garnering a response rate of 26%, Mayor Dyer had an insurmountable lead when the first precinct of the night was counted. Our Vote-by-Mail plan made sure that it was over before our opponents knew what hit them.
With the work we have done for Mayor Bob Buckhorn of Tampa and Mayor Buddy Dyer in Orlando, we have helped elect the Mayors of the cities that anchor the I-4 corridor. Winning overwhelming victories in the media markets that account for 43.8% of the voting population of Florida.
We also would like to thank our strategic partners in this race Craig Borkon and Jackie Lee of Sunstream Strategies, Dane Strother and Hamilton Campaigns. We were truly honored to work with such a great team.
