Fr. Frank Pavone worked Florida almost as hard as Lieberman did. His New York-based Priests for Life (PFL) ran full-page ads in national and local newspapers; blitzed parishes and individual pastors with mailings; provided Florida residents on request with sample "Letters to the Editor" and distributed 100,000 flyers. In addition, Fr. Pavone and other full-time PFL priests visited churches, did local and national talk radio shows and created promos that ran on Mother Angelica's EWTN, which reaches close to 3 million Florida homes. The full-court press paid off: According to exit polls, Catholic voters were 26% of the Florida electorate, and went for Bush 52 to 44 percent.
