Per the Palm Beach Post, vulgar Democratic billionaire Senate candidate Jeff Greene lost his own precinct two votes to one:

Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene lost his precinct 2-to-1 to Kendrick Meek in the Democratic Senate primary. That's not a ratio of 2-to-1. It was literally 2 votes for Meek and one for Greene, presumably his own. Greene's wife isn't registered in Palm Beach County.

Harsher still: He lost his mom's precinct, too.
