Marco Rubio wins. Grayson is gone–beaten handily by a terrific candidate and former state senator named Daniel Webster. (He will live up to his name.) And Republicans look like they are going to pick up three other Congressional seats in the Sunshine state: Steve Southerland has beaten Cong. Allen Boyd, Colonel Allen West is taking down Congressman Ron Klein, and Congresswoman Kosmas is losing to Sandy Adams.
But there is more good news. Rick Scott has been leading all night, and Republicans will control the entire cabinet for only the second time in state history by winning the Agriculture Commissioner race (Adam Putnam), Chief Financial Officer (Jeff Atwater), and Pam Bondi (Attorney General). These are all vibrant conservatives who have great political futures.
Oh, and then there is Referendum 1. It’s non-binding, but it calls for the federal government to balance the budget. It passed 72% to 28%,
Not a bad night.
