Following months of harsh partisan attacks ads costing both sides millions of dollars, Republicans hold on to a U.S. House seat from Florida in a special election replace a deceased Congressman.
Fox News Radio’s Eben Brown in Miami reports from America’s Election Headquarters:
A Republican in Pinellas County, Florida keeps a U.S. House seat in his party– with star-studded help:
Barker: “Congressman David Jolly… Come on down! ((cheers / music))
Jolly wins the vacant seat held by the late Bill Young. He promises to reach across aisles:
Jolly: “It does not mean resigning our fundamental belief in the constitution and individual liberty.”
But Democrats might look at the loss of candidate Alex Sink as a November forecast.
Sink: “They were not the results that any of us wanted. It’s um, disappointing.”
The district voted for President Obama– and Sink herself in her run for Governor four years ago.
