Can this be right?
In the GOP primary in Florida, a foregone conclusion for Rubio, 787,122 total votes cast.
In the Democratic primary, an actual competitive race between Kendrick Meek and Jeff Greene, 489,384 total votes cast.
UPDATE: Similar disparity in the gubernatorial primaries, although my assumption is that you get more votes in more closely divided and harder-fought primaries:
Vote in GOP primary for governor: 806,123 total votes cast.
Vote in Democratic primary for governor: 469,230 total votes cast.
Were Republicans more interested in their gubernatorial primary than Democrats were in their senatorial primary?
ANOTHER UPDATE: On nights like tonight, a lot of my quick observations end up on Twitter before they end up here.
