Clinton Softens Stance on a rematch in Florida and Michigan; Chain Offers Further Incentive
March 10, 2008 // Franchising.com // STUART, Fla.– Last week, all Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurants in the state of Florida gave a FREE Crispy Wing Appetizer to anyone who visited with a valid Florida voter registration card. St. Lucie County had the greatest showing with three times greater turnout than the rest of the state.
"Overall, total redemption numbers were low and we hope this isn't a behavioral indicator of future voter participation," said Lori Cuonze, Vice President of Marketing & Communications.
"Perhaps Florida voters are disenchanted with the system and feel their voice doesn't count." With Hillary Clinton's softening of her hard opposition to a "redo" in Florida and Michigan today, Hurricane Grill & Wings will carefully watch proposals being discussed by officials. Should Florida hold another primary, the company is prepared to run a sweepstakes for Florida voters to win a trip to Washington, D.C. to learn about our democratic process.
"1.7 million Democratic votes were cast in Florida," said Cuonze. "We've got to let people know those votes count."
